1 min. 36 secs. Released in 2006. Canadian. Recorded with Sony PD-150 miniDV camcorder. Trailer edited with Final Cut Pro 6.
This trailer was done in September of 2011 as an exercise in editing. The actual movie "From Far and Wide" was completed in 2006, runs approximately 30 minutes, and was my first attempt to produce a short film other than the home videos I made as a kid. I only recently discovered Vimeo and hope to soon upload the actual movie "From Far and Wide" as well as a director's commentary to go along with it.
Five young and inexperienced Canadian soldiers become lost behind enemy lines during the Second World War's Allied invasion of Normandy. When one of them is shot and killed by a sniper, the remaining four must combine their wits to reach safe ground and locate him. The deadly marksman, however, is a fifteen year-old Hitler Youth, and the task of taking him out will prove more difficult than anticipated.
