Shadows of the Heart 2005
Late 2003. A phone rings.
On the other end of the line was Makeup artist Helena Jankowski. Having designed some vampire makeup for an interstate competition, and needed somebody to film its application.
The response: ‘Well… if we are going to spend four hours putting the guy in makeup, we might as well make a film.'
With little over a week to make a movie from nothing, (and with several of the key people working full time) it was an exercise in madness. Sets were designed and built, costumes cobbled together, lights, cameras and space secured.
|Meanwhile, the story developed as an experiment in merging daytime soap opera with gothic fantasy. The movie set out create the last scene, in the last episode of a fictional TV series: ‘Shadows of the Heart'. As such, it would include the re-appearance of a character we had thought lost, and the surprise death of a major character.|
2003, MiniDV, Dramatic Short, Writer, Producer, Director. Played at the Capitol Theatre as part of the Melbourne horror festival: ‘Out to the Lights’
