Blind in Time
This is my second year major project for my course Film and Video Production (studying at the Atrium in Cardiff), and it was made by myself and a few other members on my course. Like most projects we all dabbled in every stage of production, but I mostly directed (co-directed with my mate Rob) and editted (with my mate Sophie), and as a group we all contributed to developing the ideas of the film. Scriptwriting and producing was taken up by the remaining 3 members.
The actor playing Isaac is a good friend of mine (Liam) from uni, and the actress playing Becca is a mate of his. The doctor is a (pretty bad) cameo by me (like most student films we ran out of actors, and having a beard at the time made me look a lot older than everyone else... apparently).
Anyway, the story is basically about a guy called Isaac, a migraine sufferer who experiences visions of time being distorted all around him whenever he has a headache, causing the world around him to stop or speed up dramatically. Throughout the course of the film we discover the cause of these visions, and find out the truth about what's really going on in Isaacs world.
...that makes it sound a lot more pretentious than I intended, but I suck at writing synopses.
Ayway, here's the link to the film;
YouTube - Blind In Time
It's under ten minutes in length, so if you have time to watch it please leave comments (either here or preferably on youtube if you have an account), and any constructive criticisms you may have. I'm used to lecturers tearing my work apart so although my ego still struggles to accept criticism I'm hopefully
mature enough to listen to it and, hopefully, learn from it (not sure if that sentence contradicts itself or not
p.s. Although we got a high mark for this piece (75%) I'm still not 100% pleased with the sound. Watching it back today I thought about tinkering with certain scenes, such as the time skipping by the road early in the film I though about adding a sound like quiet electrical disturbance sounds (I know what I mean, even if I'm not conveying it very well
), and almost immediately after that there should be a sound of a lift door opening. The echoeing in the doctors office is just dreadful, but we were too rushed to do anything about it unfortunately.
I've kinda lost the will to do anything else with it now though, since it's been marked and everything. If I don't leave it be I'll never be pleased with it.
