The Making of Wholly Aware, My Newest Short Film
Believe it or not, the time is finally here. After several allusions and at least 2 direct references, I’m finally getting around to dropping my latest short film. The reason why I’ve delayed it for so long is fairly simple. I just never got around to creating the content necessary to accompany the film. Lame excuse right? Well…better delayed than never.
I suppose step one is taking you through the making of the film right? Walk with me then.
It’s always fun to have cool friends that are willing to help you shoot a short film. (Although, conveniently none of them are anywhere to be found when it’s time to edit.) It’s great to have buddies that are willing to help you bounce around ideas, inform you of when said ideas suck (thanks a lot Nick), serve as your models (Andre and Rachel), camerawoman (Rachel), and emotional support (Will). At this point in time, many of you are surely wondering why I’m giving the names of people you haven’t been introduced to. Fret not! Allow me to introduce the crew:
the human, test-shot guinea pig. he’s the live model i tested most of the camera’s angles on.
the viciously, unabashed and unbiased critic. the term “truth hurts” was invented for people like him.
the beautiful, do-it-all. the camerawoman that pulled it all together. i also tested shots on her when i got tired of looking at andre.
and will…he spent most of the time being trapped in this box and just sitting there. oh yeah! he helped dub sound too.
I suppose it’s appropriate to include the “star” of the film too.
More on the making of Wholly Aware coming in the future. The short film will be dropping early next week. In the meantime, you can watch any of the other 3 films I’ve released to date online at my Vimeo page.
