'Untold' - The Short Film Shoot

'Untold' - The World Premiere May 25

Part 2 - Production, Process and Post

An unusual story, with unusual dialogue needed an unique approach. Initially I wanted to shoot it all in one take. It's been done of course, but back in 1997, it was still a fairly novel idea. I planned it out, with the intention of changing locations, across multiple suburbs. It was too ambitious.

I chose a simpler shoot, at several locations, with myself as director and cameraman. I had two production assistants help out with the sound, but with these 'no' budget affairs, everyone chips in.

Look it's no Magnolia, but it does contain its own style and has some really interesting concepts and challenging conversations. The Year 2000 was looming like a giant wave and it's felt here. One of the actors says to another, 'Beware the new century.'

Amongst it all, is a mini mystery. Can you work it out?

What happened to the actors?

Pre-Internet, well, the internet was barely being used then, so I lost contact with all of them. I moved overseas then returned to Melbourne, rather than Sydney.
I could probably track them down, (should the past be left where it is?) or perhaps they will find their way to the film, once it's online on May 25th.

The most important question is, with Political Correctness as a central theme, how relevant is it today? Did it foretell certain aspects of where attitudes were going? Was it a window into today?

Don't miss it!
