Back in September last year FXHome put together two awesome short fan-films to show off their HitFilm software and I was asked to capture all the goings-on behind the scenes. The first film ‘Knightfall’ (inspired by Batman: Arkham City) came out back in November and recently the second of the shorts, ‘Extraction Protocol’ (inspired by Deus Ex: Human Revolution) was released.
Now the making-of video that I shot behind the scenes is up online. Have a watch:
This year I’ve been lucky enough to work on two entries into the 2011 Virgin Media Shorts competition. The first was ‘Click’, a short film written by UEA MA Scriptwriting graduate Drew Castalia. It stars Matt Downton a local up-and-coming actor as a student lost en route to his psychology exam. The test that awaits him is more than he could have ever expected or prepared for. It was shot by myself and James Gorman and the brilliant music is by Dave Bloor and Simon James.
The second entry to the competition I had the pleasure of working on is called ‘The Profit’, a science-fiction short starring a current drama student of UEA Tina Baston and directed by Ross Turner.
