As promised, here is the film I've been working on over summer:



Go here to watch in HD!

Agent Dominic Harris visits a rural tea room on a mission which brings him face to face with an old colleague.

So. I can rest now. Or socialise. Or find other projects to overwork myself on. But am I satisfied with this?

Well, if you've watched it, there's a pretty good chance you noticed there are some problems with the audio. I have a list of excuses - microphone refused to work, then when audio was working, the recording button refused to get pressed at the right times, there was no way to turn off the nearby kitchen equipment - but really, what it comes down to is we messed up the audio. The lighting isn't great either. But I'd like to say I've learned from these mistakes and won't make them again when I have to make a film as part of my degree next year.

While I struggle to look at the film without worrying about these, there are a lot of elements I'm proud of. This was my first time getting together a group of adult actors and that ran pretty smoothly on the day. A lot of the camerawork is good and, edited together, I'm happy with the look of the film. My favourite bit, strangely enough, is actually the end credits sequence, for which I spent a day learning Apple Motion so that I could imitate a Paul Greengrass style credits, with added tea and cake.

Do let me know what you think. Don't be too harsh about the audio.
