Ellen

My final graduate film concluding my time at Staffordshire University.

Watch in HD for best viewing, share around and watch the making of for a little insight into how the film was made and the inspiration behind it.

Enjoy.

Heres a new screen grab of the titles for the film. Been trying to think of something that the working title could be changed to and have kind of decided on this. ellen. Simple yet  the whole essence of the film.

Short trailer for my newest film still in Post.

Trailer for my new short film coming out. It’s going to be good!

Teaser trailer for just one of the films I DoP’d on over the last month. In Post, looking forward to seeing the final result.

First Edit day was yesterday!

It felt good to get into Post after the stresses of the shooting period. It also gave me an opportunity to view the rushes with my supervisor, which turned out quite positive considering he hadn’t heard of the changes to the film.

I managed to get a very rough edit together but not every scene quite yet. I’m using one of the universities Hard Drives at the moment and have filled one of the partitions the drive is split into so have purchased a new (read, fucking expensive) hard drive that will hopefully last me a very long time.

An advantage is that its made for travelling so I shouldn’t have to worry about a footage dump when the time comes on the road. 

With my new film starting production tomorrow, I figure this is probably the best time to make my last one available for public viewing. Enjoy it, share it, discuss. 

Another camp fire test. This time shot on location using a small camp fire as the only source of light. SD copy online but shot in HD.

Location Recce Still from today, scouting for a place to shoot the camp fire scene. The place is perfect and we have access, release forms already signed and a really nice manager so everything is looking good.
