The Garden – Post

Cam and Pete have finished working their magic on the post-production side so Gayle’s movie “The Garden” will be hitting the big screen at the Top of The South Film Festival this October. I already have three other projects in various states of undress 😉

The Garden

Blocking Session for short film “The Garden” – Nelson, July 2020.

I was lucky enough to be invited to produce Gayle’s Short film “The Garden”. So far I have Acting, Writing, Directing, Music and Animation credits to my name, so this will be a cool addition 😉
We had a Blocking session last night and start filming with a night shoot this evening and a full day shoot tomorrow. We have some great local talent on board with Briegh (who is also Director) and Mike O’Malley acting alongside Gayle. Cameron Ross is DoP, Peter Blasdale is our Sound Engineer and Betsy Blasdale and Torrey Shay will be assisting wherever they are needed. I just need to get the food!

2019 was a productive year on the movie-making front for me. I was introduced to the Top of the South (ToTS) Film-makers Collective and produced my first ever live action short movie. “The Morning After” is a 6 minute one-shot, monologue to camera, featuring a young Barmaid and her take on the world after the sudden and unexpected discovery of God by scientists.

Gayle pulled off a wonderful performance, and Alison got some great stills 😉

I won “Best Animation” for “Round the Corner” at the “All Shorts Film Festival” in Takaka in November.
