Makers Comments: "I was asked to film and edit this short drama set in New York. It was a collaboration project filmed over two days (it really needed four). The set location provided some interesting opportunities as well as plenty of challenges with lighting and sound. Christopher Jolley who is based in Clacton directed the film and co produced with Jeff Haber from New York who wrote the script. The main challenge was the location. It was an open plan office with a number of desks and work stations so it limited the camera angles and had to be shot close up. One end of the building was all glass there were no blinds so there was a continuous changing of light.The decision to use green screen was very last minute and something I hadn't planned for."
Makers Comments: "There were many constraints in making this film. Patients and medical staff should not be identifiable in the film; it had to be filmed covertly. I could not operate the camera properly as camera controls were largely inaccessible, I couldn't see what was being filmed, I could only use my left hand as my right hand was connected to a cannula/drip, the drugs were affecting me, etc.. However, if what has resulted gives people some insight into what chemotherapy and radiotherapy for lymphatic cancer involves, then the film has served its purpose."
Radio Caroline Commemorative Stone
Makers Comments: "A commemorative stone was unveiled and an exhibition of Radio Caroline memorabilia and DJ guests was part of Felixstowe Heritage weekend. The guests were 2 hours late arriving so being in the right place at the right time was blown out the window. The edit included masks, compositing, audio and music extensions. Andy Merz to stabilise the shore line the flashes were then added, duplicated with an X offset then built into compound clips and stacked with an offset on the composite."
