Last summer I directed a short film titled Starlet that I am finally releasing today! The film itself was shot in just one day on the Panasonic Varicam LT, and edited relatively quickly afterwards in DaVinci Resolve. That said, I decided to put it on the shelf for a while as I became sidetracked with other projects – namely my latest feature film.
While Starlet was about 80% of the way through post-production way back in August, it wasn’t until yesterday that I decided to dust it off and put the finishing touches on it. This involved some minor re-editing, music licensing, color grading, and post-audio work. I can’t help but laugh at the process a bit, since this short is not even 3 minutes long, and yet it took this long to get done. But better late than never!
Some of you have been asking to see the film ever since I released this raw behind the scenes video from our shoot, so for those of you that have been waiting, thank you for your patience…
The production itself was tiny, and consisted of myself (Director/DP), my wife (Producer), our camera operator, location sound recordist, a makeup artist, and a PA. It was very much a skeleton crew, and like many of my other films was done on almost no budget… But in this case, that’s really all we needed to pull it off.
So without further ado, here is Starlet –
If you enjoyed the film, please be sure to share it on social media or anywhere else!
