Some cameramen and women may stumble onto my web blog and I would like you to see what can be achieved from a good idea, script, director, camerawork, sound etc.

Filmed with a Sony EX-1 with a Letus 35 Extreme and prime 35mm lenses. There is a growing number of cameramen converting their camcorders with 35mm adapters, this gives their video camera a shallow depth of field, giving them a more natural film look. 

JOE  taken from XR “Originally the film was set entirely in a confession box, which was a really exciting idea – but practically was going to make the film much harder to shoot. The small space meant that shot selection would be greatly reduced, we would need permission to film in a church – which would be tricky given the heavy nature of the script and lighting would take a long time. I liked the idea and the challenge of trying to contain the whole film in such a tight location, but ultimately we decided that the cons outweighed the pros. This was after all, going to be a zero budget production.
The script went through a good number of revisions until we had a draft we were happy with. I then went about trying to find a good location for the film.”

In general I think this is a great 15 minutes of hard work and a superb dramatic story line.
