As I mentioned in the thread for my debut festival short, Moving Day: we are still in the middle of a great festival run! Now we've finished our second short, "The Usual Silence," and have begun festival submissions. This film is based on an actual experience I had at work this past year. While I'd never wish on anyone what I witnessed, I'm grateful for the chance to explore what happened, and I look forward to sharing the experience with an audience. Since it's a short film we felt it best to keep the trailer short as well. You can watch it here.
I haven't been on this forum in quite a while. I guess over the past few years I've been making more films and videos than watching them. Until recently, most projects have been for competitions or contests. Of course, having a family and a full time job on top of all that keeps me busy. My latest film venture is different than everything I've done recently. It's a 20-30 minute short called "Moving Day" Here's the... Logline: When a terminal illness strikes, one couple calls it quits... and for all the right reasons. And a short synopsis: Pete and Carrie are in love, and they'll be together forever - at least everyone thinks so. But now that her illness has returned they've decided to split up. Their friends are confused. Is this a mutual separation, or is Pete kicking her out? I have to say, the cast and crew were amazing! We were all crammed into my house for over 40 hours across 3 days in August, and everyone left the shoot in an amazing spirit of camraderie. Plus the footage looks amazing! We were able to bring on an amazing local DP, and his RED Epic system. I was floored at what he was able to accomplish. Here's a couple of ungraded screengrabs, but you can check out the rest at the film's facebook page. Until we get a website off the ground, It's the best place to get all the info on the film and our progress. Right now we're working through post-production, planning to get picture lock, audio, and some color correction done in time to submit to SXSW 2014. And if you're interested, we are finishing up a crowdfunding campaign at Seed & Spark to help my producing partner and I recoup some of the money we spent to make the film. I'll do my best to post updates, but again most will go through the "Moving Day" Facebook page.
http://vimeo.com/43567120 I finished this last year as my thesis film for my BFA degree, and made it available online recently. It's (surprise!) a post-apocalyptic story, very Road-influenced in terms of setting and the coming-of-age elements, but with an attempt to get into some of the theological implications of how Christians would try to maintain the liturgical elements of worship when everything has utterly collapsed. I originally came at it from an Anglican perspective (I was raised Anglican) but I think it plays more coherently for Catholic and Orthodox audiences. The Anglicanism I grew up in retained some reverence for consecrated hosts, and yet never articulated any inkling of the Real Presence; I approached the story from this perspective but didn't necessarily get some of the nuances it would have for those who believe in the Real Presence - at least, not until I became Catholic this year, a step that was helped by the process of making this film. It is what it is - a student film, with any number of things that drive me nuts now that I can see it from a distance. Flaws aside, I'm glad I got to make something on 16mm one last time. To have a chance to shoot and edit on film in the last gasping years of celluloid processing (at least in Vancouver) has been an absolute gift.
