In our world time has become fragmented. 'Time holes' are suddenly popping up at any place and at any time. Revealing either the past or the future in that very location. The Government is warning people not to look as knowing the past or future could turn you mentally unstable.
We start the story with a man named George and his apprentice Kyle. They're working away on a bathroom when one of them suddenly breaks a hole in the wall and discovers there’s a time hole inside. What's revealed in the time hole is one of their deaths. Now they must decide whether they can stop it from happening, or if what's to come is unavoidable.
We're so excited to start shooting because you will soon find out that this film will, in no way, be like your usual short film format. The bathroom that the characters will interact in will be a completely built set, with all the walls being easily movable so that we can shoot in any direction. Giving us full versatility and creativity with how we choose to frame the camera.
As well as the fact that we will be shooting on glorious 35mm film, giving this the raw and sometimes gritty look that we've all known and loved from our favourite films in the past. Think of the stabbing shower scene in Psycho or Jack Nicholson axing down the bathroom door with that famous line "Here's Johnny," in The Shinning.
With a week scheduled to shoot in the studio we're presenting a story that sees two characters go on a life-changing journey, through a world that we have never seen before. This will be an amazing opportunity that we can't wait to share with you, with everything from seeing the space come alive, to viewing the film stock once it's been processed, and discovering it's all in one piece.
Living in a first world country with a roof over my head and food on my table it can be a real struggle to buy and shoot on film, especially when I can make the easy decision to shoot on digital. But hey, this isn’t about me and the bigger problems out there. This is about the future of the film industry and the next generation to come, because “Will somebody think of the children?” If Christopher Nolan can do it then why can’t I?
Therefore we would like to show you where all your hard earned money will go:
Buying 35mm 400ft film stock: $2,640
Getting it processed: $1,920
Telecine transferal: $1,440
Risks and challenges
There are so many risks and challenges when it comes to shooting on film but that's what makes it all worthwhile. This is an opportunity to go back to the roots of cinema and understand what it truly takes to make a movie, whilst letting you experience it all with us along the way.
