Hey guys,

As some of you know I shot my first studio short this summer. It's a 15 min sci-fi flick targeted at the mainstream market. It'll double up as a promo reel for the company that hired me, they specialise in compositing programs.

The film is due to be premiered in London's Leicester Square early next year. The post work is taking a lot longer than expected due to the amount of visual effect shots. Either way it was the best shooting experience I've ever had.

We didn't have a huge budget to work with but I'm very pleased with the results and how everyone got on. It was a sad day when we wrapped. I've since worked with the DP again on some personal projects that are soon to be released.

Here's a two part breakdown from behind the scenes.

Cheers,

Looks like you had a great time. Will it be released online, or sold anywhere? I think it's really cool that FXHome funded your film -- I used their AlamDV program when it first came out, geez, 6 or 8 years ago?

Looking forward to seeing it!

It's looking like they're going to sell it on dvd with a ton of extras. AlamDV was a long long time ago. They still make compositing programs, they're progressing to more advanced stages now where even Genarts and Apple have had an interest. It's going really well for them and I was really honored to be picked to direct their short. It was a great experience and I met some very talented people through it.

I've been making films since 2006. Can I say films? I'm yet to experience shooting on the film format. Even though I'm yet to shoot film, I love the filmmaking process in it's entirety. I'm learning all the time and I hope to get some work next year, if only to learn more. I don't care what I do as long as I'm in that environment. I would like to understand more about film equipment, gain a better understanding of lighting and apply that to improve on the skills I've gained already. There's just not enough time!

I'll post an update of the progression of the short and it's release. Not long to go, we're hoping early next year.

Hey folks,

Finally got my sci-fi short 'Fracture' released. We distributed it through Sony's Playstation Home network throughout the EU and looking at further outlets. I'm glad the project is now finished and I can move on to my next project which has been in the pipeline since 2007! Fracture was a no-budget community project.

You can watch the full film HERE

Would be great to get some feedback.

Best,
Ash
