Created for the Brighton Filmmakers Coalition July 2012 film challenge. The challenge was to create a short film in one continuous shot with no cuts. The Idea came to me that a film in reverse that finally reveals what had set events in motion but also keeps things quite ambiguous would be a good way of maintaining interest throughout the shot. The shoot was challenging (as a film challenge should be) for a number of reasons. Firstly maintaining focus for the duration of the shot using a 35mm lens at f2.0 aperture took some practice. Then there were 20 people in fancy dress costumes and a flight of stairs to navigate without tripping and breaking my neck. All that had to be done whilst directing everybody. It was the first time I had used Vimeo's new music archive and I was very happy with the variety of creative commons pieces available. A huge amount of credit goes to Pimmon and Peter Quistgard as their music really hits the spot.
