"Our Friend Andrew" short film.
During the recent lockdown period, rather than sit it out and bingewatch TV-series, myself and an actor friend decided to write and shoot a short film. It is an upbeat view on isolation, and about coping as well as being happy on your own. I shot and directed it and it took about 8 days to film with a minimum setup, no crew using my own camera gear (Blackmagic Production Cinema Camera). The plan is to submit to festivals next year.
I am very much inspired by the worlds created in the work of Alex Ross Perry & Noah Baumbach and the feel from these New York/Brooklyn based films (lest we forget Woody Allen). The camera work in connection with the lighting is used to create a mood and almost a character within itself which is very important to me and more than just a recording tool.
I also created the poster images below with final credits to be finalised after the final edit. The music in the trailer was also written and recorded by me ;)
