Work on our next production, Trapped began this month. I am sure the title will change over time (they usually do) but it gives us a focus and sums up the current proposed story line.
As with all productions we usually aim to achieve or learn something along the way. Sometimes we've wanted to tackle a social issue or sometimes we've wanted to use a certain technique and this production is no different.
Our production, The Letter, helped us learn more about current film making techniques (moving camera) and how to tell a story without dialogue (a picture tells a thousand words). We also hope to use some of the lessons learnt with The Next Life (character development) in this production too.
We now have an initial outline for our story, which revolves around a boy and girl aged 11-13. The story is mainly told from the girls point of view however there will be some flashbacks to aid the story making process.
The Next steps will be to turn this story into a script, whilst building various lists, visiting potential locations and preparing a budget.
This year we hope to release progress updates in the form of mini documentaries, scripting, casting, shooting, editing, etc to form a making of video at the end of the process. If you would like to have a go at making one of these for us please get in touch via our contact us page.
