This Message Will Self Destruct
THIS MESSAGE WILL SELF DESTRUCT was created for Newcastle Video Makers one minute competition. The D.O.P. for the shoot was the ever helpful Mark Owens. The day we shot this was really hot ( as you can see by the highly exposed footage). Mark and I worked on this film for around 5 hours and I copped the worst sunburn! We tried to mix our shot selections up a bit and we used a dolly and a crane where we could to create movement. Carolyn Starr plays a lawyer in the short final scene. I have played the film quite a bit and mostly get no reaction to the Occupational Health & Safety joke at the end.
