SAFE (SHORT FILM)

MELBOURNE, 2010.  I volunteered as a stills photographer for JULIETTA BOSCOLO'S final project at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). Julietta wrote and directed SAFE, a short-film featuring Australian actors ADRIENNE PICKERING and SHAUN GOSS, cinematographer JEREMY ROUSE, and a host of other actors and crew who all volunteered their time to help Julietta complete her project. It was shot in a variety of locations including a unit in St Kilda, two separate houses in Fitzroy and Northcote, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, and Barwon Heads.

SAFE WAS RELEASED IN 2011. You can WATCH IT HERE.

Sidenote - shooting stills means directing actors to recreate scenes before or after those scenes have been shot (unless you have a camera silencer, in which case you can photograph during filming without being heard by the sound engineer). As a documentary photographer, I never direct - it was in interesting experience. I preferred shooting the behind-the-scenes stuff
