A Little Less Action

Not a lot of blog-action recently hey?
Was directing a very low-budget and inevitably fast-turnaround ad piece for Sky Active channel so my 'day job' at Tandem www.tandemfilms.com became an 'evenings also' job too for a week.
That finished, then been away with family in Cornwall for half a week. So not much progress on the movie thus not much to blog about really.
Had a couple more ideas to put into the short film, hopefully I'll be posting some more once I get a chance to work these through.

Sketchbook: 'Quarry'

Virgin forest, then the road comes...
Spiraling down into the earth, forming an open-cast coal mine or mineral quarry. The extraction of natural resources...

Still: 'Paths'


A trace through the prehistoric sea. The line that will become humankind...

Still: 'Texas'


A long straight road shoots out across the plains; the arid dessert land is cultivated, first for cattle, then for arable crops.

Still: 'Cargos'


Wait at the crossing whilst a mixed freight train passes. It seems to take years to roll by (signified by bursts of remapped time); lumbering trucks with various cargos... all the fuelstuffs... timber, coal, oil, nuclear etc.

Still: 'Roundabout'


Various shots of buildings and roads constructing and pulsing with timelapse crowds and traffic.
