My stay at the European Film College is coming to an end, so I’ve started thinking about what to do next. It’s slowly coming together, I’ve applied for TV and Media Management at ‘Mediehøjskolen’ and Medialogy, so it looks like I’m moving to Copenhagen. I had actually planned moving to Aarhus, but I’ve actually come to like the idea of moving to Copenhagen instead. Also, a lot of the people from the school are moving over there and it would make it easier to stay in touch. Also, I’m getting an apartment with a guy from the school so that’s going to be awesome.

We’ve finally begun main production on the final project I wrote. It’s a sci-fi horror which centers around a small family; George and Linda Hadley and kids Peter & Wendy, in a distant future, in which almost all everyday tasks have been automated. The children’s room, the nursery, has been replaced by an advanced virtual reality, which will display whatever environment and creature the children wish for. The parents become worried when they realize that the children have become obsessed with an imaginative forest inhabited by dark creatures.
Last week we started building the set, which consists of a futuristic kitchen / living room, bedroom and hallway. Sunday we started shooting some forest scenes and since then we’ve mainly shot on our set. The shooting will be done thursday and then we’ll edit until the 18th. Anyway, here are some pictures:
The basic framework of the set.
The bedroom, ready for shoot. The monitor says ‘SLEEP MODE: ON – OFF’.
We thought of this as the replacement for the newspaper of today. You flick a button and recent news stories appear on your wall. The news stories here are kind of silly (first one being a reference to another final project) but you won’t be able to read any of them in the movie.
This is supposed to control the entire home; food, cleaning, entertainment, everything.
So far it’s been going pretty well, cool actors and we’re on schedule. Looking forward to having everything shot now, the days are long. All behind the scene pictures can be seen here.
