RUNNING TIME: 4 MINS
While walking through a park a man spies a beautiful young woman on a park bench and attempts to subtly seduce her.
As part of an exam at the beginning of his final term at film school, Peacock was tasked with making a short film using an external script, producer and actors with a four-hour shoot. This came in the middle of his practice run for a minimalist graduation film, so Peacock decided to create something abstract from the provided script. The film was well received by the tutors.
This is one of my weaker efforts. Although I had the largest crew I had yet worked with I didn’t really use any of it other than the assistant director and sound girl. I tried to turn the quirky script into something completely abstract and it ended up dull and empty. Even the cinematography was flat, there’s a couple of shots I liked but on the whole it’s worthless. It did provide a good lesson in filming spontaneously and crew management but what’s onscreen is very disappointing in comparison to the surrounding works.
