New short – ‘Adrift’

Adrift has finally been finished and I’m happy to now be able to share it. I co-wrote the short with my friend Pete Naylor and we’ve both had a lot of fun bringing the idea to life.

Shooting for “Adrift’

I spent yesterday down on the coast shooting for “Adrift”, a short film I’m putting together with Peter Naylor. I’d like to say a big thank you to Justin Smith, Ryan Sutton, Liam Hind & Jamie Crown who came along to help out on the shoot. I didn’t realise quite how much we were going to be expecting of them until we got to the beach and realised that the location was quite a trek from the car park.

Justin, Ryan, Liam & Jamie not only carried much of the gear to our base camp but were happy to do the trip four times in total ferrying loads of gear around including a Jib which isn’t an easy thing to be carrying on a sandy beach on a steaming hot day. We were also on location at 6am, not easy for most of us but especially alien to students!

I’d also like to thank our Actors, Sally and Mya who were fantastic, my friend Tim for helping out with props and Sylvia for preparing a huge supply of food and drink for us all.

I don’t want to give too much away about the story for now, but here’s a few frame grabs and some BTS stills I grabbed while carrying the 5D around.
