The story came about from pondering moral dilemmas and realizing that the bigger the moral dilemma is for a short film, the better the film is going to be. Out of that came this.
Written specifically for Adam Warnock and his son Gus, designed to be shot in one location during three days of a two week vacation in Sydney, NSW. This film was also shot during that vacation.
This was literally a two person production, with Dave doing the producing, directing, writing, lighting, camera and editing, and Adam, in addition to bringing his character to life, composed and performed all the music and did the sound production.
Dave's biggest concern was if Gus would be able to perform as well as we'd hoped. And he exceeded expectations with a masterful and subtle style of acting that brought the character to life.
This film was shot exclusively on a Sony A7S and post-production was done in Adobe Premiere.
