- Each film will have its own unique protagonist/s.
- The shorts will only be connected thematically.
The first short will be 'Round in Circles'. The film is an idea that has been in my mind for quite some time - the story of a mother who recalls moments from her past. In fact, I began shooting such a story almost 2 years ago but abandoned the project as the film didn't quite capture the feeling that I was going for (I will discuss this attempt in a future post).
The story for this second short dates back to 2010! I'll provide some details regarding plot, characters, etc. in the coming months.
Pre-production: I've spoken to an ex-colleague about coming on board as a producer/production manager and I've almost completed the storyboards - I've been using the 'Storyboards' iPad app that Erik Knudsen utilised for The Raven on the Jetty (see 'video blog' for further details)...and here are some early examples of the boards that I've created.
The script for this film was offered to me by another filmmaker. I'm not going to go into too much detail but they felt that the story would appeal to my sensibilities...and they were right!
I expect this short to happen later this year...
