PLEASE PROVIDE FEEDBACK... GOOD OR BAD ... IT'S HOW I LEARN TO BE A BETTER FILMMAKER :)
I am an amateur filmmaker and just do this for fun. This short was created for the Big Shorts Film Challenge. When I saw the Big Shorts Film Challenge had two categories, Hobbyist and Professional I knew that I wanted to try and compete at the Pro level to really push my limits as a filmmaker.
HERE IS A LINK TO MY HOBBYIST ONE: vimeo.com/47867748 (Watch the Pro One First)
Big thanks to my whole family, wife, kids and dog for helping me on this project!
This is my first short narrative ever filmed, it is about an adventure of two brothers trying to make it home. I figured since I was going for the hard category why not make it even harder, so I worked with child actors, animals and stunts :)
I spent a lot of time capturing Ambient / Natural Sounds because that is the focus of the challenge. It is the first time that I have had twice as many audio channels than video channels in my timeline.
The Big Shorts Video Contest rules are as follows:
* Use the song “Building Houses” by Wesley Jensen
* The theme is "Home"
* Use Ambient / Natural Sounds and Voice Over or Dialogue including the line “my heart is”
* Create a 115 - 120 Second Film
