Hello Hello Hello...
I'm happy to announce that my new short film:Bill, For Short, is complete!
Well, almost, a few minor sound tweaks, but it's done. It came it under the 10 minute mark at 9'40", so I'm happy with that. And I'm happy with it in general. I like it. I think it's a nice piece. It has a certain feel to it, a pace that's quiet and reflective and I feel like it moves along nicely and delivers the message I was hoping it would. Both from a personal perspective, looking back at my Grandfather's life and from a technical perspective, as an experiment to see what we could shoot in 2 days with just 3 people and no money.
Unfortunately I'm not going to post it!!! I know I said I would, but I'm going to enter it into festivals, see if it does any business and one of the rules to enter festivals is that the film not be publicly screening anywhere, whether online or on TV.
So in the meantime here's the poster!
My brother Noel played the part of me in the film and John Lawler was the Cinematographer . I wrote, directed, edited, composed and performed the music and did the voice over.
I have to admit, I love digital technology. I think if I had the opportunity to make a feature film I would chose to shoot on Film, but for just getting out there and making something digital is the way to go. I feel very lucky to be a filmmaker right now.
Hopefully I'll have more news on the film soon. Right now, I have to get back to work on the next draft of Ghoster... more news there soon.
