Let Me Know (an experimental short)
I never sleep on my own work so it’s surprising I shot this on a lovely Saturday morning in April, edited within a day or two and that was it - it was never published. This is partly due to the fact that I thought it was missing a message, and obvious narrative.
Why did I shoot this? I usually see something on TV or in a film and I go “Ah, I’d love to do that!” In this case, I was inspired by a long steadicam shot therefore I decided on shooting a fly on the wall narrative of a young woman who had just received some bad news and struggles to break the news to someone (whoever that is). The aim is for you to fill in the blanks on what that message is and who that person is… i.e. make the story yours.
I hooked up with an actress friend of mine Nemide May who did a brilliant job!
Ps. This was also the first time I edited in Adobe Speedgrade! Great tool if you’ve got hours and days to spend on colour grading your work!
