This is the title of my latest short film exercise with FutureLearn an online film course.
So I had a lighting task;
Using whatever equipment you have to hand, we’d like you to film a very short scene with just one character, in which you use lighting to create an effect of your choice.
I got caught up in the story, a concept I wanted to put across about how a little boy looks to an application called Siri for friendship. My idea was to use the electronics to light the scene, but I didn’t gauge the length of time each device would remain illuminated, valuable lesson learned from a simple assignment.
Because this is a short film, one minute twenty-three seconds you don’t get to see environmental effects, or home life to draw much of a conclusion. However in an era of technology and dwindling community, how realistic is this concept?
Here is a still picture from the short film I blogged about last week, I called it Box. Luckily a friend – Nicola McHugh also the DOP – will edit the two-minute short in the coming weeks.
Our leading man, actor: Tim Fergusson
Very excited to see how well we’ve captured the concept visually and perhaps get Box into a film festival 😀
Have a creative week!!
