I play music in my good friend Tyler’s band. We recorded an EP in the summer and it’s coming out this Wednesday, October 28th. To celebrate the release, I’m creating this little series of short films based on a character in one of the songs.
The first two parts were filmed over the course of one afternoon/evening with my friends Andrew Gummer and Tom Gunia. Tom has this little drone that can fly up to a KM away and we used it to get that bird’s-eye-view shot you see in the first scene. Andrew persevered through the cold night in damp clothes (damp because we spent the night before dragging them through the mud). We’ll film the third and final part in a few weeks, preferably when there’s a light dusting of snow on the ground.
It can be so liberating to throw caution to the wind. No script, no expectations, no grant reports. Just friends and ideas and a camera.
Look for the rest of the films soon. When it’s all said and done I’ll stitch all three together and post it as its own entity in the FILMS section.
Until next time.
