Two years ago last weekend I was gifted with the chance to work with Vanessa Ionta Wright on the set of her PSA “Be A Hero,” which I talked about previously on my blog here. Did you get a chance to see the finished product? It’s still online and available! Check it out after the cut.
My latest short film is an experiment in two ways. The first, it’s a “resource driven” project where I wrote a script utilizing only what I had available, limiting myself to expecting to have no budget or access to new props or locations. The second part of the experiment is inviting filmmakers to take the script and allowing them to shoot their own version of it.
We’re currently in post-production and will have this out soon. Until then, if you would like to be part of the experiment, please visit the page on my FX site, read up on what I’m doing, and then download the script.
Good luck everyone, you’re gonna need it.
What you’re seeing is my discipline as a production designer/scenic artist as I decorated an abandoned mill to look like the lived-in workshop of a tortured artist. Not only did I fabricate those mannequins, but I also painted all of the acrylic art scattered throughout the scene.
So check out the video below, and if you’re into the “behind the scenes” sort of stuff, I’ve got a link to my portfolio that shows the steps I took in decorating the set, and the terrible things I did to the actor.
