A Case Of The Clappers
A Case of the Clappers was shot as a group shoot project for our club Newcastle Video Makers. We shot this at Carrington and Teralba over 2 days in 2010. The film features a huge cast. Malcolm Young, Dani Huish, Emma Elsley, Stella Rose, Zoran Markovski, Danny Di Agostino, Ian Huish and Trevor Anderson. The fabulous special effects we're provided by Ian Huish, look for the shadows below the clapper boards, those flying Clapper boards look awesome! The music and all important sound effects are by the ever reliable Mick Rippon. Mick chose to be a little spare in his score and this works well with Ian's wonderful animations. Our film does look a little blood thirsty but it is cartoon violence and a lot of fun. Clappers went on to win the audience favourite in our club's national competition plus a weekly prize in Harold's Shorts in Sydney. The crew on the film were Me, Mansell Williams, Ian Huish, Mark Owens, Geoff Peel, Laura Owens, Ralf Jorg, Stella Rose, Kathy Prior, John Robertson, Mick Rippon, Carolyn Starr, Renee Mondy and Donna Drysdale. I've just re watched Clappers to write this and remember it was a massive undertaking but it still looks incredible.
