20 Minutes Sharp
We were brought in by Community Campus ’87 to create a drama film dealing with knife crime on Teeside. The idea was to create a film based on peoples real life experiences and for them to act in it. The film features 8 non-actors, many of whom have been affected by knife crime themselves and was shot over 2 days on location in Stockton and Middlesbrough.
We shot this completely handheld using a shoulder mounted DSLR camera in order to heighten it’s realism. This combined with the raw performances by the cast enabled us to create a real and emotionally gripping short.
