Girlfriend vs Boyfriend

vsThe execution of a woman’s elaborate plan to take revenge on her boyfriend.

This was my first project to be shot on a DLSR. We used a Canon 70d. The lighting was accomplished using Halogen worklights purchased from Homebase and a couple of plastic table cloths from Poundland, which were used to diffuse the light.

Overall the production cost £210. I screened it at Kino London in May 2015 and then submitted it to four film festivals. It was selected by Screen Stockport Festival in October 2015, which was sponsored by IMDb.

This was my first film to qualify for listing on IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5097636/

The poster was designed by a fiverr user, using an illustration by Mariella Delahaye.

The Photographer

I studied Film and Video: Theory and Practice at the University of East London (UEL). During the first year, we had to create a 90 second film that made use of stereo and widescreen. At the time, not everyone worked in a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Together with my flatmates in Finchley Road, I used the 90 seconds to create a trailer for a non-existant French film about a photographer who develops an obsession with potatoes.

This was shot on MiniDV using Sony DCR TRV27E in 2006 and edited using Ulead Media Studio 6. The music is by Joe Hisaishi and comes from the film Howl’s Moving Castle.
