Before committing to shoot a feature film by the end of this year, I wanted to shoot a couple of quick and dirty short films to do some creative and technical tests. One of these test projects was a no-budget ultra short film that takes a minimalistic look at a young model on her first day on set. Using a dark dream-like style to highlight the idea was to highlight a different side of the modelling world.
The film was shot in two half days back in March, but I didn’t finish it until this week as I was taken away from it with my regular day to day work. The film will be officially premiering at a film festival here in LA next month, and once the scheduling details are made available I will post them in case any of you from the LA area would like to come out.
Like my last few film projects, I shot this on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera (EF) using a Tokina 11-16, Rokinon Cine 35, and Rokinon Cine 85. I decided to cut it in Adobe Premiere, even though I use FCP X for most of my personal work as it was a way to step out of my comfort zone and look at the film from a different perspective.
