My Short Film "Mother"

Recommended Posts

Guaranteed to be the 2nd best film you've ever seen called 'Mother'*

 

So, I wrote, directed and edited this. My first short since college. Filmed in October 2017 the week after my Nan passed away. Quite overwhelming. Then with a mixture of work, freelance and trepidation about editing the perfect vision I had had in my head for the last year, it then was a further 2 years before I had it finished. Original music added and here we are.

 

Boring facts.

-Shot on GH5,

-Budget (minus equipment) about £1300.

-I filmed the daughter's part 1.5 years after the original. It was always the intention to not film on the same night. But a week/month later. Not a year or more.

-I've just remembered I need to sell the doll.

I can almost sense the love radiating off this post and the love of Mother. 

 

May be another fact... 

There are no Dutch elms left in Britian

Jill Stanford was great. Nicely shot and lit, I think the violin screeches come in a bit too heavy and early, the creepiness really gets going when the folly is left alone to do it's work. If I was being fussy I'd say the design on the wall is a bit naive in a way. The doll on the floor works better, so maybe the wall thing might not have been needed, if I was being fussy.

It does a great job of not looking cheap - I think Jill helps with that as well as the confident directing.

 

I liked it.

@daninski, only just seen your comments. Thanks. It's not on Vimeo yet. Unsure if it's really worth it. I've submitted it to ALTER 4 weeks ago. A couple of hopeful finger's remain crossed.

good stuff liked it :)

 

Loved the bit at 1'27" with the thunderclap reaction shot, very Romeroesque.
