Adrian, first I would like to congratulate you on a wonderful piece of work as everyone else has. I just had a few personal questions that I was very curious of if you didn't mind...

Age?
Video/Film background? Like did you go to film schools or have you just been an avid hobyist for a while? Obviously you've got some real experience somewhere :D !

Seeing your ultra low budget film come off so beautifully gives me inspiration to see my film school dreams through and far beyond that.

Hi Bryan,

no, I don't mind sharing a bit of background on myself, I'm actually still a student, to be graduating this July, I'm doing a degree in Graphic Design but to be honest, the work I'm doing is about as far apart from my course as possibly can be, which brings me into constant conflict with my tutors.

so with regards to video and DV, I guess I'm self taught, mainly from books and observing films and a lot from this site with all its knowledge as well. I was from a photography background, self taught as well, so the next 'logical' step was for my photos to 'move', so that's what I'm trying to do now. Others might have a different opinion on it but I find filmmaking A LOT harder than photography. Where previously, I had to have the elements in place for a split second in time, now I had to choreograph the whole sequence, think about camera movement, sound etc etc etc... so right now, I'm infinitely challenged by this whole filmmaking thing. I had a Sony PC100 handycam for about 2 years, never really did anything productive with it and only got my XL1S last June, and immediately shot 'Talking with Fishes'

nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it, cliche but true i think, so whatever your dreams of filmmaking or film school might be, go get it done!

hope it helps somewhat.

Adrian

Adrian,

That is very good news that you are going to have your first short
up on a Festival! That must be a tremendous exciting thing. How
did you get this to happen?

Also would love to see some screencaptures from the footage
you shot with the mini35!

Keep up the great work!

Hi Rob,

Well, for the festival thing, I'm currently just sending out as many submissions to as many festivals as I can, and it so happened that the people in Raindance saw something interesting in my film I guess...

anyway, the stills of my latest film-in-progress is on another thread...

Adrian,

You should be very proud of your effort. Very nice work. I hope at some point you would be able to write an article for us about your experience.

Keep up the good work.

hi Adrian,

Congrats on your short film. Are you based in Singapore? cause I am a Singaporean. I am also very keen to get my short film done soon. Maybe we can meet up sometime to share our vision?

I'm from Singapore but I'm London based at the moment, I wrote 'Fishes' in London, shot it in Singapore and did all the post production back in London. The music was composed by my friend and musician Max Garfinkel. You have to have original music (or own the rights to any other music) if you wish to send it off to festivals.

spin around shot

Awesome work! Couldn't convince myself it was DV at times. With the tripod dolly shot you did at the mall aquarium (360degree spin), how did you get that juttering effect? Is it an effect in FCP?

Hi there Peter,

thanks for the kind comments, the juddering effects was just a result of speeding up the footage actually, no fancy tricks involved.

Hey...

I just saw your film and I liked it a lot...though you are going to need some better music to make it work great...
But besides that I really liked it...the cinematography in particular...

keep up the good work...

bravo

Excellent work Adrian. The film was a joy to watch and I was truly moved by the emotions you captured and conveyed with your images. You showed us the story more than you told us the story and that is the place we all aspire to be. I strongly agree with your vision and the responsibilty that filmmakers have. Thank you for sharing a beautiful piece of work with us.

Cheers!
