Short film produced in conjunction with sound designer and musician Danny Rowe.
The idea for the film came about by a chance purchase of an old typewriter and a fascination for the intricacies and industrial qualities of these beautifully crafted machines. Combined with the very tactile nature of the old writing process, the film captures a physicality and sense of significance that is somewhat lost in the modern age communication.
Set in the 1930s and shot with a nod to film noir, our film follows a man through the process of writing a document on an old typewriter.
Capturing the ebbs and flows of the writing process and the almost ritualistic habits surrounding the production of the document, the film is intentionally open ended as to the identity of our writer and his motives.
Shot with a close intimacy to the action, our film focuses in the minutia of the process, revealing snippets of time and leaving the viewer to make their own conclusions as to the significants of the action that has taken place.
