Film Storyboard

posted in: News, Short Film | 0

I have spent time working on my short film day & night, creating film storyboard, looking through actor applications, arrange to shoot the film, where will my film be screened, and many more. It’s a lot to do. But, I’m almost there. Making storyboard for my film is fun and very useful. So the film is well-organised, which will make the filming process run smoothly and finish on time. It also helps me know the time I really need in each scene, when and how I will film, is it easy or difficult?, do I actually need this scene?, and so on. It really helps me visualize the whole process and see it in a more realistic way, so I can see¬† how I am going to approach this whole thing in a more manageable way. It speeds up my project to a great extent when I know what I am going after, how long it will take, and how the end result could look like. I will make more storyboard and add to its own page here later on. So you can follow my project till the end ūüôā

By the way, I have changed my film title to Birgit Reenberg.

I tried to make a snowfall. But it’s taking to long to create tiny snow particles over the entire image, so I only managed to add a sprinkle of snow just at the top of the picture as you can see. I could use a software to achieve it. But I don’t have time searching for the right software at the moment. So, I just made what I could make. Yes, I plan to shoot this scene in snow. But, if I couldn’t do it then never mind. It’s just an idea.

The Point of No Return

posted in: News | 0

I have come to the point of no return. There’s no turning back now. I have finished my short film screenplay. Maybe not quite. I still have to polish it, check grammar & spelling, dialogues, and more. But, the most important thing is that I have reached the point where I can, finally, type FADE OUT & THE END! And that I am happy with the plot. So, I won’t make any more change. I could start shooting my film this week. I have lots of actors which I need to go through and select. So, after I have added the finishing touches to my script, I will ask the actors I have shortlisted to send in their self tape auditions. Then, I’ll take it from there. I will have to make my selection quickly since I want to complete the film before Christmas.

One of the reasons why I attend martial arts classes because I want to be able to do the fight scenes in my film confidently &¬†authentically. I want the audiences to experience the reel sense of originality. I want them to see that the actors in my film, including me, do know how to perform the fighting scenes professionally because we have been trained and trained. So,¬†I am happy that I have returned to the martial arts workshops. I have not been there maybe for about a couple of months because I was busy filming. I have a commitment to make this film. And I will carry it through. So, I devote myself to create a good film. Therefore, I must have a real knowledge in martial arts skills, to make the characters in my film more believable. If I don’t believe in it myself because I don’t know how to, technically, fight how am I going to convince my audiences?

Script Complete

posted in: News | 0

My script is now complete! And I’m very happy with it. Nothing will be changed no more. But, I do have to change the title, tagline, and the summary a little bit, so that it makes sense with the new plot. Most part of the plot remains the same, only some has been adjusted and added to transform it into an action movie as well. So tomorrow, I will work on new title (or, I might not change it at all), new plot summary, and tagline. Since I have now accomplished the majority part of the project which is to finalize the screenplay the rest will be easier to achieve. I am over the moon now. I have a feeling, it’s going to be good! And I will still shoot my film with my cell phone. I plan to submit it to film festivals as well. After I’m finished polishing the script, which I will do tomorrow, I will start sending the script out to actors I have shortlisted to send me their self tape auditions. After that, I will begin to film. I’m so glad that I have managed to get myself together and write a script and make the film, at long last. Phew!

Now, I will celebrate it by watching some good movies and relaxing.

Filming Locations

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News, Short Film | 0

I will go out again today, searching for the right filming locations still. Even though it’s just a 10-minute long film, I just want to create a unique film experience. I can’t reveal too much. I just know, it’s going to be an exciting film in many ways. At least, in my opinion. It’s my first film, so I want to play with possibility as much as I can. London is a big capital and has many hidden, beautiful places which I have yet to discover. I am sure to find some interesting settings for my short film. I have not had breakfast, yet. I am so¬†enthusiastic about my film making project that as soon as I wake up, I start working on it straight away daily. Until I get very hungry, I stop to eat. My film could be screened in time for Christmas, which would be good. Now, I will have my breakfast. Then I’m on my way!

Possible Feature Film

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News, Short Film | 0

I have been working¬†on my short film’s screenplay all day long, revising, adding and removing something, and so on. I’ve just finished it now, actually, only because I’m hungry. I forgot to eat something. I just had breakfast as soon as I stood up, and nothing else till now. So, time to stop, relax, eat, and watch some films. Then, I will continue to work with it tomorrow. I’m done for today. I like it so far. I want to make a short film. But then, I got carried away when writing the plot outline and wrote it for a full-length film instead of a short film. So, I have to take a lot out to make it a short film. But, the good thing is that I then have two scripts & films to make if I choose to shoot 2 movies: A short film and a feature film of the same story. If this short film turns out well I will, possibly, make a feature film version of it as well. So, making a short film first will test the story, my screenwriter skills, my ability to make movies, and more. It looks promising so far. I like the plot. The question is how to turn it into film that attracts audiences? My first short film is the key to all my questions and doubts. I will not know all these answers before I have made the film, people have watched, commented, reviewed, and so forth. It’s exciting to see how people will react to it? Like it or hate it? Or nothing at all.

And an another good thing for actors is that I may use the same set of artists again in my feature film version.

My Upcoming Short Film: Love & Fall

posted in: Film, News, Short Film | 0

My short film has now its own official page on IMDb, Love & Fall. Tonight, I will add plot outline, plot summaries, synopsis, etc. There’s only one cast member at the moment which is me ūüėõ More cast & crew to be added later on when I have found the actors and we have finished shooting the film. I’m so excited now! Last night, I worked on my film until 3am. And I reckon, it’s gonna be the same today again. For me, if I’m doing something I really love time doesn’t exist, or, it just stands still. I will start adding plot, synopsis, and more to my film page on IMDb now. Then, I will go through new applications again tonight. My film starts to shape now. Then tomorrow morning, I might make some more jewelry and add them to my site.

Below is a sneak peek of my upcoming short film, Love & Fall. More info on my film page on IMDb: Love & Fall (2017).

Making Film With No Crew

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News | 0

That’s right. It’s me, Making Film With No Crew. It’s just a 10-minute short film. But, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes, actually. And it’s only me to take care of all these. It can be very challenging. But, I like challenges. So, it’s good enough for me. I do have lots of applications coming in regarding my short film. So, I will spend tonight going through them. The people I have shortlisted also have to send in self-taping auditions. And I will spend the weekend watching them instead. Everything looks good so far. I didn’t expect to get that many interests in the project. There are actors who apply for all roles. Therefore, I think, I have got enough people now. The next step is just to start shortlisting people. I can’t wait to get the camera rolling!

I try to add my products bit by bit every day. I have lots of items to add to my site. I can’t add them all at once. I need to work on my film project as well. So, at least I have added something daily, then it should be good enough. I like making jewelry, especially bohemian style. So, I have to continue with it. I also wear all of my products. I make for sale and for myself. So, I only make what I really like to wear myself. I spend time crafting each jewellery with care & love. The same with screenplay. I just want to add that extra care and passion into it.



Casting Call

posted in: Acting, Entertainment, Film, News | 0

Hello,

I am in the process of making my first short film about love & sorrow. I am looking for 3 actors:

Gerwyn (male) Р25 -35 years old РLead actor speaking role (Caucasian, English or American accent preferably, but not essential).

Medium build & tall or taller.

He is well-considerate, kind, loving & caring, romantic, if he could play a guitar and had his own guitar would be a bonus.

Tolbert (male) Р27 35 years old РSupporting role, speaking part (Caucasian, English or American accent preferably, but not essential).

Medium build & tall or taller.

He is violent, possessive, controlling, alcoholic, but deep down he’s very insecure and vulnerable.

Candy (female) Р25 -35 years old РSupporting role, Danish speaking with speaking role (any ethnicity and look).

She’s worrisome, protective, a mother figure.

She is a friend of the lead actress.

I am an actress myself. And I will play the lead actress in this film as well. Have a look at my profile on IMDb: Buppha Witt

I’m going to shoot the film with my smartphone as an experiment. And I might submit my short film to various film festivals as well. It’s a one day shoot only. And it only takes about a few hours. I plan to shoot the film on Monday 20 this month, or as soon as I have found all actors.

No food provided since it only takes about 2-3 hours to film. But travel expenses max ¬£10 provided, a copy of the project, and a credit on IMDb. We will be filming in central London. So, I’m looking for London based actors only. And we may work together again on future projects since I’m going to produce more short and feature films in the future.

If interested, please email me with your recent headshot and CV to actor@buppha.com. Thanks.

Shoot Some More Scenes Today

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News | 0

Today, I stand up early to start working on my films. I should get up earlier than this. I think tomorrow, I should wake up at 4am or 5am. I might go out and shoot some scenes soon. The earlier I go out, the better. I don’t want to get people in my scenes since I don’t pay them, or get the permission from them to film them. So, I must start early, to avoid people. It’s still dark outside. It’s getting dim early now. We are almost in winter now. We might even have snow this year as well. If I go out now, by the time I get to the locations where I want to shoot my film, the darkness will disappear by that time. So, I might get ready to go out now. I always feel productive and active in the morning. From now on, I should start getting up early – as early as possible. I will create some posts looking for actors first. Then I will heading out. Then by the time I get home again, some people might have already applied for it. I want this to be completed as soon as possible. So, I must try to get it done quick. Hopefully, I could finish my first short film this week.

I love this song “Blue Valentine” from Tom Waits. It’s so calm & relaxing to listen to in the morning along with a cup of good coffee. My creativity really begins to flow when I listen to his music, especially at quiet moments like this.

Working on my Script

posted in: Entertainment, News | 0

I will complete my script tonight, hopefully. Then, I will watch and edit the scenes I have already shot. Then I will post on several sites looking for actors tonight as well. And tomorrow, I might go out and shoot some more scenes. I am going to make 2 short films at the same time. So, it’s quite interesting how they will turn out. And also, this will be my first time working with other actors as a screenwriter, director, producer, etc.

Well maybe not quite, I had done similar roles before when I was a student at Copenhagen Technical College in 2004, studying Film & TV production. We did make some student films and hired some actors to be in our films. So, I did work behind the scenes before to produce films. But that was many years ago. So now, I have to start all over again. I feel like coming home. It’s funny enough, I find myself going back where it all began again. But that’s the way it is. You can’t start in film industry and not be tempted to explore different fields within it. Like me, I started as a filmmaker, then actress, then back to filmmaker again. But this time, as a filmmaker, screenwriter, producer, director, and actor.

It’s typical that many actors turn screenwriters, film producers, directors, and similar, themselves at some point. It’s almost difficult to avoid when you are already in the entertainment industry and passionate about Film & TV. Some even turn musicians or vice versa. Think about¬†Mark Wahlberg, he started as a musician who turned actor. I remember listening to his music in the early 90’s. I have also watched his low budget movies when he first just started out as an actor. Then when I watch his big budget movies later on, I often ask myself, still: Is this the same guy? So, it’s just possible.
