Term 1 Reflections

End of the first term, Xmas is here and so are the mad ramblings of an HND film student 🙂

Hi, I’m Jon Morby and I’m on the HND in Moving Image Programme with Raindance

So far this year, we have started covering the role of the Producer, what they need to do, and how they work with the rest of their team to produce a film.

Producing is, in a way, like party planning or event planning … Lots of coordination, lots of project management and lots of hurry up and wait as you assign tasks and wait for them to be completed … pushing deadlines as the subordinates/team fail to deliver on time (yes, pessimistic I know)

Geneticide is a sci-fi thriller based in a dystopian future where the state controls freedoms which we take for granted today, whilst ignoring others which we have fought so hard for in the past.

This is a World view future …. influenced by everything from the Apple Watch (influencing the implants) through to China with their policies on procreation.

The biggest challenges will be in post production, the VFX elements especially.

Term 2 promises great things, working on the film, focussing on documentary and more! Bring it on!!

Geneticide – Producers Pitch

Due to re-arranged classes and prior travel commitments, it wasn’t possible to pitch to the class before I flew off for Xmas with the family.

To ensure potential Directors get a chance to find out more about my planned short film, I have put together a short piece to camera and a slide deck which hopefully outlines the idea and will be enough for potential Directors to come forward and put their hat in the ring.
