On Top of the World: I shot a new scene for my demoband with just three other colleagues: Mykyta Gibalenko as director and DOP, Ben Reynolds as the other actor and Chris Rauch on sound. Believe it or not, that’s really all it takes to put a film together. Well, that and motivation. And speaking of motiviation, why you may wonder do I even go to the trouble? It’s true I do shoot quite a lot but projects (at least mine) seem to get tied up forever in post. That means, I don’t get to get my impatient little hands on anything new in a timely manner. This can be a real drag when you’re trying to show off what you can do.
I actually love doing short films and scenes and would like to do many more. Of course, it can be a lot of work. But, in the end its worth it because you are the one in charge and you can decide exactly how to cast yourself. In this case, I have used the role of Judth (the name of my character) to reiterate my “type”. Judith is an ambitious lawyer, on top of her game and seemingly the world as well. But is she really…? Bum, bum, bum!
Here are a few screenshots from the shoot. I think Mykyta did a beautiful job.
