Screenplay by M. Robert Turnage, 26screenplays.com and Steve Fisher
So, we finished our first ever short film!
Wow, that was a huge learning curve… The reason I wanted to do one is that as part of the video training and learning curve it is often said that there is no better training than hands-on with the making of a short film as you have to be a jack of all trades and the wearer of many hats.
From the script, through the shot listing, direction, and production, equipment and camera settings, lighting, composition, storytelling, working with talent and film locations, the editing process with the latest NLE software, and of course sound!!…. The list is endless.
It was a lot of fun and given that it was my first, shot on two Sundays and edited in 4 days over Christmas, it’s just about ‘ok’ I think… Roll on the next one!
….. anyway, take a look, turn up the play-back quality to HD 1080p and crank up the volume and give it the thumbs up … or not I guess.
