This weekend was amazing as we met with so many other filmmakers at the annual 2015 Queer As Film festival, which showed such a quality & majestic selection of LGBT shorts/documentaries made by some very talented and lovely filmmakers.
A comment on the film;
We were at the time in deep post production on our feature film, and while that was being worked on by others, we suddenly found ourselves with 2-3 days to spare and nothing to do but wait. So because we all find sitting around rather difficult to do, and with our creative juices itching to do something else to keep us going (Alex wanted to try some new FX out, our DOP Kaush wanted to try a new camera out while I wanted to scribble down something new), we all decided to go out and make something one summer evening. No planning, just improvisation on the spot. But one thing we all agreed on, a challenge we set ourselves so to speak, was that it also had to be something short, it had to create some kind of awareness, whether from a good or bad event, and it had to be something personal we had encountered at some point in our own lives; and in this instance we felt Homophobia was the (horrific), theme to highlight in order to try and show the effects it can have on a life afterwards. But more importantly, it had to be something that would shock an audience and leave an impression on them afterwards. We hope we got to achieve that Thanks to Queer As Film for their kind words & support as well as a massive congratulations to everyone who showed their films at the event too. It was such a pleasure to see them all & that positive LGBT films are becoming an even greater & formidable force to be reckoned with to help raise awareness.
