We wanted to challenge ourselves to create an original story that could be told without a single word. When we started this project, it was fun to break away from our “event” headspace and dive into storyboarding, writing, and film production. We were very fortunate to have a talented cast: Robyn Slade, Tobias Hughes, and Selah Mohr (the absolutely adorable girl in the park). Thanks to Brent McCrea for lending his time, talent and studio to record the original soundtrack to this film – it really enhanced the story even more. We have some behind the scenes footage of that recording session here. This was our first time using the Canon 60D (we purchased it the first day of filming – thanks to Don’s Photo) as well as the Philip Bloom Signature Series Pocket Dolly from Kessler Crane. As part of Still Motion‘s Short Film challenge, we entered this under the theme “Restless”. Check out the other contest entries and vote here.
