This project, started in 2013, with my first EP “Watching The Stars” It all began when I included Sinatra songs in my live set, and was overwhelmed with the audience response, although I know I don‘t sound anything like him, I just couldn’t resist writing some songs in that style. Stuart of One Night Stand […]

#10 Short Film on a Shoe String: The Green Screen

Comments: 0

When I had the great idea of a green screen, we all thought any kind of green curtain would do the job, but that was a big mistake, because the colour didn’t key in properly in the editing process and we ended up with blotches on the screen. This mistake cost about £350, so buy […]

#8 Short Film on a Shoe String: The Subtext

Comments: 0

Leave something for the actors to play. Don’t have your characters speak everything out. When a character speaks about things that happened in the past, it puts the present scene on hold.

#6 Short Film on a Shoe String: Script Dialogue

Comments: 0

If you don’t have script you don’t have a movie, because it’s the starting point for any story that you want to bring to life on the screen. You don’t strive to write more eloquent and poetic scene description. Between those written words within a screenplay lies the dialogue. And yes, the dialogue is what screenwriters […]

#5 Short Film on a Shoe String: Music

Comments: 0

Music in film have been together from the beginning, yes silent movies, a pianist and sometimes a full orchestra would be hired to add music, to enhance the drama on the screen. For about the first thirty years of cinema’s existence, virtually all films were accompanied by musicians. Eventually, films were distributed with published cue […]
