Trivia

As a one shot or continuous take film it meant the film was shot in just one day, but due to tech issues took 14 takes. You don't see it but a dolly & track had to be whipped away and the focus puller, gaffer with flag/reflector and spotter/buddy or guide had to follow the Cam Op staying out of shot. More choreography than camera move. See more »

Superb!
25 March 2019 | by suzannedavies-70241See all my reviews

I found this short film to be so moving. A difficult topic sensitively handled. To shoot this in ONE take is just amazing! I found myself completely immersed in the story line, so clever how the relationship between the main character Michael and the female voice unfolded. Kept the suspense and intrigue right up there. Very thought provoking. Many congratulations to the entire team, i look forward to seeing more!
