Filming a One Minute Short Film #ToDream

#ToDream1.jpg

We recently released our one minute short film into film festivals. #ToDream tells the personal story of Violet who plucks up the courage to get around London. She is new to the sights and sounds, and we wanted to show in her eyes how daunting the experience can be for young people who aren’t used to city life.

We shot the film on the Sony A6300, with a Cinemorph Anamorphic filter made by Vid-Atlantic, that creates the stretched vertical bokeh and the long light flares. We shot the whole film in under 3 hours.

We managed to film on the London Underground. The way we achieved this was to shoot with minimal work without causing any interference with the station. We also filmed on multiple stations so that it wasn’t too noticeable. This was a true guerilla styled shoot, We didn’t have problems as we were respectful to the station location and I knew what we wanted before getting to the location.

The film managed to get screened at the Moving Pictures Cinema in April as part of their London Film Showcase.

I have ideas to develop another film based with the same character, and we’re hoping to shoot the film during the Summer period.
