A short film about dating a woman who has rage issues, and how the explosive anger can tear a relationship apart.
I made this movie to promote the comedy and self help book, "STAND UP, DOORMAT: A Relationship Survival Guide For "The Nice Guy" AVAILABLE FOR $4 ON AMAZON HERE: amazon.com/Stand-Up-Doormat-Relationship-ebook/dp/B00BH4ZMHO
BEAUTIFUL MESS stars Kalynn Kai and Sol Kahn. Photographed, edited & directed by Gary DeJidas. Filmed in Kauai, Hawaii (Kaua'i, HI) in late July of 2012.
On the technical side, I filmed this movie with a Canon 5d Mark II, and a few shots involving water with a GO PRO HERO 2. I used a Canon 100 macro lens, and my workhorse, a Nikon 24mm 2.8 AIS lens that's about 30 years old. Mostly the Nikon. I had both actors for a few hours, and I spent the last 1.5 days of my family trip to Kauai filming most of this movie. I had no crew, but two amazingly awesome actors.
