Yeas ago, when his beard was frightening instead of famous, Phil Robertson from A&E's hit show "Duck Dynasty" took what was just another phone call at work that changed another man's like for eternity!
Family Business. Short film comedy, written and directed by Corry Raymond.
The story is centered around a man attempting to charm the fortune from his sick & wealthy Uncle Reg before becoming bankrupt in the process.
It was shot on the C100 using Zeiss Prime lenses (the 35 & 50) and using a HDMI out into the Atmos Ninja 2. I did my own cinematography and if you look closely I tried to keep a continuity of shots in the way a character is seen. The opening shot is referenced in various 'establishers' later on (such as the lounge scene) to jog the audiences' memory to the opening shot.
To reach festival criteria the film was edited to be as close to 3 mins as possible (final length 2:58) but I feel the end shot should feel like a quick punch and then cut to black.
My main influence is Woody Allen to which the style is attributed to. The opening song was an original piece written for my film- I wanted something jazzy with a Soprano Sax (not quite Woody Allen's clarinet but I prefer the sound of the Sax). A small bit of trivia, the Saxaphone player is Paul Raymond, my dad, which helped contribute to the 'family business' feel.
This was the second stop motion I made. This time I asked my mum to shoot as I moved infront of the camera. I didn't really plan what I was going ot do in this and I think it shows. I also think that there is something missing from this, the flow is too smooth - I like it when my positions aren't too neat and I think this can only come from taking the pictures and posing myself.
While we are waiting for the fresh Salmon season to get started we decided to go target some brookies at la réserve faunique du Saint-Maurice. Good times and great fly fishing vibes in the wild.
En attendant la pêche au saumon de l'Atlantique, nous sommes allés pêcher la truite mouchetée sur les lacs de la réserve faunique du Saint-Maurice. Du bon temps entre amis et des flyfishing vibes de qualité étaient au rendez-vous dans cette merveilleuse région sauvage.
