Here it is!!!
‘Mind Games: The True Reality of Imaginary Friends’ is now available for your delectation. To be enjoyed with a banana or banana flavoured food substance.
Thanks to everyone who made it to the Degree Show opening last night. It was all very wonderful and surreal so the week ahead should prove to be just as exciting. It is an honour to be included in such a talented and friendly bunch of individuals (i.e. the Time Based Art-ers) and work with so many great people outside of that as well.
The film will be available online in the coming week so watch this space!

On Set Diary - Day 4 (28/02/13)
Four days in and we were on a roll. Not literally, as I’m not sure where you would get bread that big. Today was the day we were filming all of Annie’s scenes. This involved a seperate interview as well as the scenes with Colin and Jeff all together. In a last minute panic, after having bought balloons to use as a prop to show she was a children’s entertainer, we realised we could not blow them up and had to hastily purchase a balloon pump. Luckily there was also a pirate costume complete with sword that everyone had good fun whilst waiting on said balloon pump. A change of location for the last scene of the day and we were rushing around making food props (scambled egg and banana) and lighting tea lights for the romantic dinner before it got too dark. Another 40 or so minutes and a room full of cigarette smoke later we were finished and all headed off for a well earned break before filming the last couple of scenes later that week.
Here is a sample of the cutaways we shot during filming, all containing bright primary colours.
Inspiration for music that’s quite childlike and innocent. The glockenspiel works really well for this but something acoustic based would also work.
On Set Diary - Day 3 (27/02/13)
With still no on set problems, we powered on through the script filming all of Colin and Jeff’s scenes that they had together. This provided a nice break from the more formal interview set ups so we get into doing a lovely bit of improvising. What was originally written as a couple of lines based on Colin and Jeff making a romantic dinner for Annie turned into two 5 mintue long improvised takes which not only tested the actor’s ability to stay in character but also the crew’s ability to not burst out laughing and ruin the take. Thankfully we managed so bananas all round! Also, with the lack of interview scenes, we got to whap out the old fig rig to make all the hand-held a lot smoother. I still don’t quite understand it but who am I to argue with a steering wheel that makes everything look like it was shot on a steadicam.
