Microfilm Three: Backbone

The third topic of our microfilm series is ‘big’.

A couple of weeks ago I set out on an adventure to Werribee Gorge to clear my head and get out of the house, and ended up doing a 10km hike through the breathtaking terrain.


Film Eight: Polytechnique (2009)

“If I have a boy, I’ll teach him how to love. If I have a girl, I’ll tell her the world is hers.”

Microfilm 2: Post Scriptum

This week’s microfilm topic was on the theme of ‘you’.

Inspired by a very important person in my life, I decided to focus on a very serious medical illness as the subject of this film.

Film Five: Café de Flore (2011)

“Do you believe in soulmates?”
“I do. I like the concept that there is somebody who is supposed to be with you forever. But if it’s a soulmate, it’s not supposed to end, right? It doesn’t happen twice in a lifetime.”

Film Four: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

“Sometimes I think people don’t understand how lonely it is to be a kid, like you don’t matter. So, I’m eight, and I have these toys, these dolls. My favorite is this ugly girl doll who I call Clementine, and I keep yelling at her, “You can’t be ugly! Be pretty!” It’s weird, like if I can transform her, I would magically change, too.”

Film Three: Memento (2000)

“I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can’t remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world’s still there.”

Film Two: The Way (2010)

The Way is an inspirational and heart-warming film that focuses on the themes of loss, community, faith, and forgiveness.

Microfilm 1: Melancholia

This week’s microfilm topic was centred on the theme of ‘me’; and through this film I tried to capture the deeply personal headspace of sentimentality and longing for the past.

Film One: Detachment (2011)

Detachment (2011) is an emotionally powerful drama and is filled with genuine characters whom explore the important themes that surface within an American high school environment.

28.02: Self Portrait

To start off a brand new year of filmmaking, here is the first warm up project to get us all back into the rhythm of film school.
