As it’s moon week (apparently), we should all remember the first UK moon mission, via the medium of this short film I made earlier (feels like yesterday. Wasn’t.). It’s a dramatisation of real events, like First Man or Hidden Figures, only shorter and with less historical liberties.
Nah, a ridiculous short film I wrote, is shooting in Saltburn this weekend. It’s got a talking deer in it, and these shoes. Aren’t these shoes great? The film is directed by Laura Degnan. It should be finished by Christmas (talking deer take time) and I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
Here’s the film we made for the National Film Challenge 2011. It was written and made in 48 hours. It’s quite funny. We got in the top 11 out of, ooh, millions of entries probably. Maybe hundreds. Anyway, we did quite well. See what you think.
We won best use of genre – mockumentary. Not even best use of bubbles, or most realistic weeing on the floor scene. Travesty? You decide.
Made for the Go Green 48 Hour Film Challenge, and mostly shot on Earth.
The theme was “Save the Planet”. I think we managed to do just that. We’re all still here, aren’t we? You’re welcome.
At the beginning of February we travelled down to London to take part in the Shine Shorts 48 Hour Film Challenge. The theme we got given was “love”, and we had a monkey costume lying around, so we made this.
The music is by Fyfe Dangerfield off of Guillemots. Swoon! The tune he came up with, “Monkey Love”, was a perfect fit for the dreamy, fairy tale vibe we were going for.
Well this is nice. Despite the script sometimes sounding like it was translated from Finnish to English by somebody from the moon, the narration works well and I proper lol’d from around the 5 minute mark.
This short was made in 2003, and the director has since expanded the premise into a feature – Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
The trailer has a great last line…
“Fucking amazing” – Marc Price, director of fucking amazing zombie film Colin.
Made in 48 Hours, from script to screen. I think it’s the best-looking film I’ve been involved in – it was great fun playing with the Sony EX3 camera we borrowed (even though it took us a little while to remember to focus the thing). The script’s ok – can see lots of little bits we could have improved, but it really was written on the fly so it is what it is, man. The performances – can’t fault ’em. Just brilliant all down the line. Anyway, hope you like it. CAUTION – it’s a bit rude…
