Black Milk at the Haugesund International Filmfestival - August 24, 2009
Genesis Film and I held a presentation about our short movie project Black Milk on Filmkraft Rogaland’s very own “film boat” – the green veteran cruise boat M/S Sandnes holding various events during the Norwegian International Filmfestival in Haugesund.
We were sharing some experiences we’ve had during the pre-production of the highly visual- and special effect dependent film as the Black Milk is. One of the topics was how we approach this in a low cost way. This included the benefits from using RED camera and mini-green screen studios for testing and more.
I held a short synopsis of the story along with conceptual sketches. I also shared some of the background and insights of the creative process when developing this world and story. An important experience for us is the great strength in pre-visualizing the movie through art and pilot clips.
It was great to have the opportunity to share a bit of what we do these days. It is always a bit intimidating when presenting a project you believe in – especially for a whole hour – but in the end I think we got very positive feedback on both the creative work so far as well as the presentation. I look forward to next year as we got a lot more worth showing!
