At the begining of the year I had shot a little teaser for the short film titled Emily directed by Guy Davies.
Emily is a film about the progression of emotions and the development of a relationship between an intelligent girl and her kidnappers.
I Jumped on the train from London to Bristol first thing in the morning, or rather really really early in the morning for the one day shoot, shot on the 5D and some house found practicals and a kino. A few weeks later this was then used on Kickstarter.com where Guy and Matt Brawley ( producer) managed to raise an impressive £3,848 ! for the shoot,
A few months later, enough was raised for us to shoot on 4:3 Alexa & spherical front lomos, This has been one the sexiest setups I have ever shot with, absolutely beautiful. None of this 2:40 extraction from 16×9 images, we are talking true 2x squeeze. The quality of this setup becomes very apparent very quickly .
Overall a straightforward shoot, we had a bit of steadicam ( Matt allsop ) some low loader for the car driving scenes, a night scene and the main location where the kidnapper was held ransom.
Emily is now is post production.
Definitely a good way to have spent the weekend.
