While I was on my recent hiatus I was surprised by the fact that the average view count on the blog never really went down (thanks guys!) and even more surprised and delighted whenever someone would contact me having made a film. I had intended to post the films as they came in but life got in the way.
So I’m going to start posting them now and through the coming weeks. The first one is a doozy, Niklaas van Poortvliet from London has adapted Line of Sight, renaming it Sniper. I’d just like to point out that these guys and girls got away with shooting on a London rooftop with a sniper rifle! Here’s an introduction from Niklaas:
Out of Sight jumped out amongst other scripts I had read, as it had a very interesting dynamic between its characters and also some action, which I had never really attempted. I knew when making this film that getting the right location would be paramount in making it believable. Getting the sense of height for the sniper to perch and look down from meant we had to find a rooftop in central London. Gaining access to a roof top in central London with no budget is hard, let alone with a sniper rifle, so we shot very early in the morning to keep a low profile, I had some sleepless night on the approach to making this but I’m so happy we managed to pull it off. I guess if a film doesn’t challenge you then you’re not learning anything. Thanks to everyone who got up early that day and helped out this little film together and thanks to Robert for giving us the script! Good luck to you all for future projects and email me if you have any questions or wish to collaborate in the future firstname.lastname@example.org
I love it and hope you enjoy it too.
