I recently participated in my second 48 hour short film competition, helping out the lovely Cat & Jo, as well as Mooch. It does what it says on the tin, essentially you need to come up with a concept, write a script, shoot and edit a short film in 48 hours all based on a theme that they give you at the start of the stint. The theme this year was ‘War’ or ‘Peace’. The film was called “Make Piece”.

We have been fortunate enough to get our hands on the Canon 5D Mark II. We shot entirely on there, using some in camera sound, but recorded most sound on a separate camera. The 5D is a magnificent camera, pumping out beautiful, crisp, high quality footage, but of course comes with the downside of being 30 frames per second. So we had to deal with that side of things within the 48 Hours as well!

It was freezing cold on the day, we spent the morning out on the beach in Southend-on-sea and then went to a factory. This factory had the most amazing equipment that all had a specific purpose.

Anyway here is the end result. If you are interested.


The history of War told through a Food Fight

This great short film by Stefan Nadelman and Tourist Pictures is a stop motion animation depicting an American centric history of war. Told through a Food Fight. I spent the entire film guessing what the different points in history were, and what countries the food represented (not too good with my American History).  Luckily they have a cheat sheet.

Any guess which country this food represents?
