I am a big fan of the quick production. Not that there is a problem with the Mallickesque pre-production style across a few decades. The Tree of Life took time, but boy was it worth it.
However I have found focusing my creativity quickly can bring great results. One of my most popular short films (Screened across the UK and Europe) to date was made within 60 minutes, Nuclear Mysticism.
0 minutes on pre-production
30 minutes of script-less filming
2 minutes of a one take V/O
20 minutes of editing
3 minutes finding the wonderful copyright free “Dali” font for the title.
5 minutes to grade
60 minutes total
This short film went to on to be nominated for a variety of festivals across the UK and Europe. Receiving thousands of views and even got me paid work.
So that’s it, 30 days of photos. In the end some were not from the archive due to busyness. This last one is. On a ferry traveling across Lake Victoria. If you are going to win at cards, do it in style and with red eyes. Circa 2008
Today’s post is a bit of a treat of photos from a rather insane journey I took.
From the bright lights of Kampala, Uganda to the abstract craziness of Yei, Sudan (Now South Sudan). This is easily the most insane travelling I have done and one of those I look back upon still with fear.
Final stretch of these and I shall try and get a wide range of stuff that I like. I would say photos you may like but as I am the only person who reads this it would be pointless to not at least entertain myself. That’s a special shout out. You know who you are.
So today this pops up on a video I am watching and for the very first time I enjoyed an ad on YouTube. A new dawn has begun, ads will now be funny, they will be better than the actual video you wanted to watch and most importantly they will be unrelated to anything you ever want to buy.
