I fretted over "The Joys of Christmas" project all Christmas. Nothing about the topic really inspired me.
3 days ago I suddenly decided to make a film I would enjoy making instead of trying to make a film about Christmas. Strangely, it did end up being a film about Christmas. Just not a conventional one.
I came up with the idea and then wrote the script to music which I downloaded at http://www.audionetwork.com/ (and paid a whopping £5 for!!!)
I wrote a out a detailed shot list in the evening and went out shooting the following morning.
Shot on the Canon 5D MK II using an Extender Lens and occasionally a Steadicam (which I am not very good at)
Shot in 2 days
Edited in 3 days
