From ‘Digital Video III – Manifesto’, this was a collaboration with Greg Workman, in a class project on ‘Film Manifesto’ groups (think: Dogme). Greg was busy with his Design Major Project, so we broke the tasks up. I did pre-production, Greg did camera and visual edit, while I did sound design. I was in the midst of GradDipFilm essays, so my script-writing brain was swirling with ‘Truth in Documentary’, funding models, and format-franchise reality TV as ‘factual’ programming. Stylistically, Greg wanted Fisher Spooner – I wanted boys in opera frocks! (Something to do with falling asleep during Cremaster Cycle?)
Thank goodness for the wonderful comic flair of the actors: Brendon Simpson (Scriptwriter/Actor, also VUW Film Dept.), and Greg’s friend Dave Siemens. Red Treasure screened on TVNZ 6 as an interstitial.
