The Collector ( a 5min drama made for the 48 hour film challenge London)
Role: Director of Photography
Friday 6pm, director pulls our challenge requirements from the 48hr hat.
Title: The Collector
Character: Mr Saunders
Line of dialouge: Should we just leave it like this?
Our team of writers begin work.
The writers work all night trying their best to have a script ready by early morning.
Crew call 8am. Find that we have no walkie talkies and every door in the complex
must be unlocked by a chaperone every time anyone wants to go anywhere.
Also the script has yet to be written. We regret getting up at 5am.
11am script is suddenly ready. Rush through the shoot and finally finish by two in the morning. I go searching
for my camera assistant who, because of the lack of walkie talkies, got himself locked in the basement. Hence a couple of out of focus shots for the party scenes.
All great fun and highly recommended. Next time I'll direct one myself.
