Pirates & Indians [F]
While cleaning out boxes in my room, I found some forgotten footage from back when I was attending film school. This brought back memories and good feelings, I was actually laughing aloud.
Not a day went by that I didn’t have my small Sony handycam with me, and together with my like-minded, new-found friends, we were one take wonders. Not only that, but we often made these mini shorts during school time:
During intermission for a children’s ‘Peter Pan’ play we were currently performing ~ hence the costumes and makeup.
Love the expressions! That was one of our best quirky shorts. Filmed in chronological order, completely impromptu, no rehearsal and one-take for every shot. After every one we would laugh because we kept surprising ourselves. The audio wasn’t perfect either because the laughter would often continue through while rolling.
Apart from the audio and the disappearing act/major continuity error towards the end (I didn’t call our band the ‘Shit Shooters’ for nothing ), I’d say that was a job well done guys. Thanks for the memories.
Related news; my friend Tomah Mackie is back home in the United States continuing to live his passion. He has a new short film (written and directed) called “L O V E S U C K” which will be released early May. Here is a making-of-video to the production, aptly named “Passion for Cinema”
This short film was shot in Milwaukee by a talented and creative group of people who don’t call themselves filmmakers… yet.
That is a cool featurette and I dig it. A real insight into your appreciation toward storytelling. I look forward to watching “Lovesuck.” From myself and your New Zealand film family; good luck and well done to you and your crew Tom ~ Kia Kaha Bro!
