3films - Director's Statement: What?

‘3films’ is the working title of a series of 3 short vignettes in the secret lives of several disparate characters; part of a pentalogy of 5 films, which are in turn inspired by the 5 human senses. Each film is a micro-short of no more than 2 minutes in length, and will be screened in conjunction with each other as a collected narrative piece of no more than 15 minutes.

Each film blossomed from the seed of a random daydream, or the excited epiphany that follows the inadvertent observation of something that interested me on the way to work or school in the morning. They are among other stories that
write themselves, that are hastily scrawled in a Moleskine notebook I keep in my back pocket. They exist in this compendium of 5 because of their anthropologically sensorial origins. Their stories are separate, but because of their common source,
share the themes of connection/disconnection. Human beings are strange, social animals – these films are a small testament to that.

struggling with the third film.

it's already May and I'm still struggling with the last film of the '3films' trilogy that is scheduled to shoot in August, September, and October.

I know what it's about, and I know how it'll look, and I know what themes I want to tackle, but I still haven't got a narrative.

It's one of those things where I know I just need to keep doing other stuff and BE INSPIRED but it's hard when the clock's ticking away at the back of my head.

anyway, back to work. May's film is shooting this week. A documentary about designers. Meeting with my production manager tomorrow.

(And Elise has passed me a link to this, which might be useful.
