Development of a film assets for the opening of a cinema complex in Sydney’s Bondi Junction.
Rescoping an original “three short film” suggestion for the work, I assembled a collaborative team of students and professional mentors to develop 30 filmic vignettes – “popcorn” movies tracking the development of three filmed scenes from different genres – Space Drama, Romantic Comedy and Film Noir. I wrote each scene and assembled the production crew to shoot each main scene in 35mm Panavision, and the remainder of the 27 vignettes in 16:9 digital video [which I also shot] – which was extensively graded and treated.
These films played in the visitor circulation areas of the new multiplex complex. The work was delivered beyond expectation and to budget, with a host of student internships established in the production phase. The project not only created the work, but provided a valuable internship experience for over 20 digital media students, most of whom are industry professionals today.
