When Ian and I sat down to watch what was practically the final edit, it was a relief, although I knew that wouldn’t be able to get any distance and objectivity for some time. I’d watched it so many times in different forms over the previous year. The final task was to get Laura Howard [...]
On October 6th, Rael Jones began working on the score to Get Well Soon. Up until this point, we’d been using Nick Cave’s bleak score to The Road as temp music, as well as some earlier ambient tracks Rael had prepared. Rael and I had been members of Thumpermonkey Lives! for a while; what we needed for this short [...]
Director Jack Burnford asked BRAG to help produce his music video for FLY, the first single for Natomic’s flagship band Reeson. Scheduled for release by Universal Music in July, Kiss FM love it already. Steve Smart thinks it’s the “soundtrack to the summer”.
Get Well Soon is nearing the end of post production. In fact, all that remains is the sound work. Hopefully that will draw to a close this month and then we can get started submitting to festivals. Here is a great little video made by Ian Baigent (co-director) using all of the slates filmed in [...]
During mid-July, Ian arranged to meet again with Rory and Robin Freeman, (Ian’s band-mate in Hag). Robin is a chef – he supplied a number of ‘delicacies’ which were perfect for creating flash cuts of an unspecified surgical nightmare. I had plans to attend and make an ‘offal documentary’, but I thought better of it on [...]
By early June, Ian’s son was home. Things had gradually returned to some sense of normalcy, and Ian had begun working on a shorter cut of the 30 minute assembly. Another 10 minutes of footage were shed. At that early stage, a part of me honestly thought that it couldn’t get any shorter. This cut [...]
1-2 May – Second Weekend of Filming. The week in between both weekends of filming was pretty chaotic. Ian’s son was still critically ill. We realised we needed to get on and produce a shot list based on his notes, and that we might also have to cut some corners in relation to coverage. Time [...]
Today sees the release of the trailer for the psychological horror short Get Well Soon (previously known by the working title The Bath), starring Gresby Nash (The IT Crowd) and Laura Howard (Midsomer Murders). It showcases some of DOP Rory Moles’ beautiful macro sequences, filmed on the Canon 5D. Get Well Soon is a surreal [...]
Zoe Smith will be competing tomorrow 6 October at 9:30AM (UK time) and we hope that everyone will get behind her. Zoe is only 16 years old and the youngest weightlifter to compete in the Commonwealth Games this year. Already holding over 300 junior records in Great Britain, we’re sure that Zoe will make a [...]
BRAG Productions are pleased to announce that the promotional video for Commonwealth Games England is now up to view. The video features 16 year old weightlifter Zoe Smith who will be competing next week. For more info on Zoe and the rest of the team please visit the We Are England website (click here). Zoe [...]
THE SHOOT: Weekend one – 24-25 April Finally, the first weekend shoot had arrived. I had worked out a prop list at the last minute, but then BRAG informed us that they had found a production designer – Sophie Wyatt. This was on the 19th, just five days before the first weekend of shooting. With [...]
Late Feb /March 2010 - Location, funding, crew and camera Towards the end of February, Ian and I began looking for a Location. In retrospect, this was one of the most difficult parts of the whole project, as we had very limited funding; a lot would depend on luck in finding a place that looked right, and [...]
Feb 2010 – Production Support We received an email in mid Feb from BRAG Productions: “Alison and I both read the script yesterday and liked it very much. We would really like to know your plans to shoot and see if and how we can be of help.” I’ve become an enormously cynical person over the [...]
From script to screen with two weeks in-between. The originally “untitled” virgin shorts project came about of need as much as want. Previously having not worked on a short for over a year, and having directed/produced, and often edited, somewhere in the region of 80 commercials since (from tour videos and film trailers, to 60 [...]
