Week 2 of the relaunch retrospective is the first film I ever made. I’d dabbled in making gaming videos before under the alias of Captain Jack Gumption (A channel that is still live to this day) but never written a script, used a proper video camera (the mighty Canon XM2) or anything to do with live action film.
The film was made for a College Project, the brief was to create a film that followed the guide lines for the Jameson Empire Done in 60 seconds competition. With that I created a 60 second version of Se7en. This film very rarely gets shown anywhere. Mainly because of my woeful acting (and questionable moustache). I’d like to thank everyone who I worked with on this. Pretty much all of my college cohort such as Jess, Dan, Reece and the rest of them. I’d also like to thank my tutors too, Dean Ayres and Oliver Reeve.
Without further ado here is Se7en: Done in 60 seconds
One of the projects I’ve been working on recently is a 5 minute horror short called Hidden Within. Although I can’t show the finished article just yet I can share the poster which I’ve just finished. (I know, great aint I)
For this one I did a lot of the sound work, lighting and I was the design manager. It wasn’t an easy project and its got a few issues to say the least but hey, making movies can’t always be simple or everyone would be doing it. It’s also worth mentioning that the film will have two versions, an edit by myself and an edit by Stephen Harrington. Steve was the Director of Photography on this one, the guy in charge of the camera on this one .
It was great working with Leanne and Nathan who starred in the film and Jade who is an exceptionally talented make up artist. These Guys and Gals were great and made for one brilliant shoot.
My version of the film will be released in a couple of weeks so keep checking back to see the finished article.
