I thought it was time to cobble together some kind of showreel… this covers various filmed work done since 2016, headed obviously by the current efforts on Birmingham Now. Feedback is welcome!
The finished film is basically a monologue—performed brilliantly by Liam Woon!—but originally we were going to add some filmed inserts. Here we have my storyboards for some of those inserts.
Now we have an official poster for Monsters, designed by moi!
So… I’ve been playing with the footage for Monsters, and I’ve done some tests on the colour grading. The raw footage has a very flat colour profile, which allows filmmakers to push the images to suit the mood or preference more comfortably. Below are two graded frame grabs and finally a look at the raw (unmatted) footage for comparison.
(A trailer for the film is coming very soon!!)
Principal photograph for Monsters was completed last night (Sunday)! In a very cold warehouse in deepest Coventry, the six-hour shoot went really well… a couple of annoying technical problems were surmounted without any great drama. (Okay, maybe some drama!!)
Huge thanks to Liam Woon for his brilliant performance and going above & beyond to help us ensure it all worked out! More soon!! But in the meanwhile, as ever, here are some photos for you to peruse…
Now available for viewing: my edit of an extract from the Monsters rehearsal film, featuring Liam Woon as “The Man”. The proper shoot will be in Coventry on October 21st!
Yesterday, we had our rehearsal for the aforementioned Monsters short, with Liam Woon playing the role of “The Man”. The final run-through was filmed and I played around with the image & sound a little bit—a YouTube link to that will follow. The shooting proper will take place later this month. Meanwhile, here’s a couple of pics, plus a shot of Liam with Steve…
Monsters is a short film project we’re working on which is currently in pre-production. IMDb entry here!
We’re still looking to firm-up a location and I’m currently storyboarding a few key elements. See first two below. There should be positive news on this one real soon…
