Youtube - Taking a Break
A little about the film:
It was a group piece made my myself and four others in the space of a week. It was our first assessed piece for our first year of university doing a digital film and video course. Our brief was to make a five minute film around the theme of a video diary and it was to reflect the way people perform when the camera is turned on them. We chose to look at rising celebrities (none of the characters are real, however) and use a documentary style for the piece, that displayed people who are failing at their chosen celebrity life pretending that they are successful, if that makes sense. Even if the film making side isn't brilliant, I think the actors did an amazing job as it was all improvised. They each had a brief workshop so we could form their characters, but there was no script.
