Flick O' The Day: ESCAPISM
Heart-Beat Production has been committed to creating films since Jake was in high school. To demonstrate the growth of our Heart-Beats, we want to share with you our Flick O' The Day! A series of posts to show past work of the Heart-Beat team. Today's video: ESCAPISM
Escapism, an Official Selection of the 2009 Newport Beach Film Festival (CA), was filmed and cut in 2008. It is a great representation of how Jake showcases environments in his films. This element of his style is one we will see very clearly in IN SEARCHING, we will even see some repeat locations in the two pieces.
Escapism is where we begin to see Jake's film making style evolve. It is also a piece he has learned a lot from. Jake has said, "If I could make the film again, I would absolutely make it shorter. We need should have arrived at the animated figure in the first minute. It's pretty common to say 'I should have made it shorter' after the fact, and I've learned to be more ruthless since cutting this film in 2008." This ruthless mentality Jake has developed is simply one way that he has grown over the years.
We hope you enjoy the clip, and thank you for being part of the journey!
