an NYU Grad Film exercise
Penultimate week of NYU. Got the chance to direct an off-the-cuff scene with Peter Deming, cinematographer of Mulholland Drive, I Heart Huckabees, Cabin In The Woods etc etc.
I feel this is a very serious and important piece of cinema attempting to confront an issue I know I barely understand.
Starring Kate Deming, Julien Léonard Fernandez & Emily Cheeger
Peter's team were Mia Cioffi Henry, Jono Chanin, Laura Valladao & Faraday Okoro.
Annual indulgence in the Sci-fi London 48hr Film Challenge.
Last year was High Tones (http://vimeo.com/mroscar/hightones), which was placed 3rd by Guillermo Del Toro.
This year I was busy at Aspen Shortsfest with The Kármán Line (we won two awards!) but was determined to join in anyway. Tradition and all that.
So this one isn't so much a 48hr challenge as an 8 hour one. Made with a few splendid folk also at the fest and done in five shots.
Also check out this entry by my former team in London (my erstwhile film family), this time directed by Kármán Line's producer Tiernan Hanby: https://vimeo.com/91932659
