— I assembled a small crew, myself, two on camera and a sound man. Emer was chosen as the female lead, she was also the producer and the driving force behind the project. Rob Reeves the male lead came onboard just before the project. He was a great find as we had experienced some harsh learning, while trying to cast this part at first. He was dedicated and diligent. He is a truly wonderful comedic actor and reckons this part was written with him in mind! As it was a mini - crew we worked solidly for two days to get it shot, working well into the early hours of the morning.
I am so grateful to my cast and crew who enhanced the short film through improvisation scenes and making suggestions that elevated the project.
After the film was shot, I was faced with finishing all the postproduction myself as the lockdown for the covid 19 happened.
Fortunately, I used Fiverr.com as a resource to collaborate on certain aspects of the films sound, colouring and titles. Otherwise, this film would not have been possible to complete due to the pandemic. This gave me time to work the edit to a place that I am over the moon about. I never thought that you could work on a film online with other people so cohesively and effectively. I guess this is a game changer in how I will make future films.
