I like short films with just one or two scenes. I like self-contained stories. Not to say I dislike big sweeping epics, I love them too, I grew up with them, but there’s something present, immediate, in the moment, about minimal short films.

Where There's Smoke

A short film about a man awoken by a house fire.

As a filmmakers and photographers we need to push ourselves and our work to the limits of what we have available - sometimes out of our comfort zones - and this was one of those projects: write, shoot, edit, and publish a 2 minute film in 24 hours.

Also, as filmmakers it’s really difficult to go against your natural instinct of making sure the eyes are in focus the whole time - purposely placing focus on the mouth, ears, or nose feels wrong, unless it tells the story, a close up of someone whispering, listening intently, or smelling something - in this case smelling something and more importantly - struggling to breathe through thick smoke where the eyes aren’t as important. Shooting at f/1.2 on an 85mm lens lent itself perfectly for this.

However, pulling focus to the eyes for a second, here and there, keeps us in the moment with the panicking man and offers the promise of safety.

The rule of thirds has the eyes on the top third line but at the focal length and framing this makes the mouth feel too low on the frame and makes the viewer uncomfortable, giving them a sense of dread adding to the point that something is off.

So it's not hard to make a film apparently.

The way we see a film is all down to the director. Master and commander, captain of the crew.

Ah, but without the script there's nothing to direct - Writers welcome.

Oh, hmmm, actors. S***, can't direct thin air even with the best script and someone to perform it.

Even then it's not free so you know you need a producer. Phew! sorted.

There you go then, oh wait, the best script ever written even when performed by the best actors ever to grace us with their presence and paid for by the richest producer who hired the best visionary director to bring us the greatest masterpiece of film history would be totally awesome...

Well, it would be if we had a camera operator to shoot it and an editor to piece it all together.

Wow, it's not that hard then. It looks fantastic.

What? what did they say? Oh, wait we need a sound operator as the make up, costume, set pieces and special effects are lost without sound. Was that an explosion? FOLEY ARTIST PLEASE!

Huh. So they don't look right without a make-up artist, a costume designer, set designer and decorator and special effects wizard. But now at least everything looks and sounds perfect in that light.

Turn the lights up a bit mate over there. Crap! We need lighting crew.

Ok then. Great film. But hang on where is it? I'm sitting here ready to watch this magical spectacular but there is nothing showing. WTF man!?!? WTFF?!?

Oh, distributors, durrrr, I forgot.

So that's it then it's made and it's out there.

FANF***INGTASTIC! Can't wait to see it.

So do I just stand in the street here or... at the end of the world looking over?

Ah, s*** we need a venue. A cinema or maybe just a TV at home.

Good stuff.

S***y b******s! Need a projectionist at least or some sort of TV broadcast service...

So we have a cinema or a TV. Sit back and relax. Feet up. Popcorn and a drink.

Eyes and ears... Well ****, at least they're free and easy to come by... For most of us at least.

Next time someone asks me "How hard is it to make a film, really?" or says something like "Tut, don't worry, can't be that hard, people do it everyday."

I'll just look at them and say something like "Yeah."
