I don’t really know what to say about this, it’s my first short and I wanted to try this medium after trying music, photography, drawing/painting and all sorts of writing in order to figure out myself and my depression.
It took me months to complete due to my mental state and lack of energy and I intended to post this sooner, but life can be a little too much sometimes. Or very often in my case back when I made this.
Even though it was the hardest creative thing I’ve done in my life, (despite having a background or experience in most of the separate art forms that make up a film) I was really lost in the entire process and I developed love/hate relationship to it. I wanted to quit all the time when I wrote it: when prepping, when shooting and during the long, motivational drainage that is editing.
But I guess that’s also where the love was born. No matter all the mistakes I made, I could somehow save it and make a decent first short thanks to the editing by re-arranging the pieces I had. Throw away most of it, stretching what was left of it, slowing or speeding up some of it, playing some of it in reverse. Dubbing in new sound (needed, cause most of it was unusable. Note to self: Don’t forget sound!)
This one was shot on the DVX200 before anyone asks 😉
Anyway, enough talking. I hope you’ll give this a go and give me some pointers, but go easy on me, okay?
Now, pick you poison:
