48 hours to say "Goodbye Gilbert"

On the 21st and 22nd of May was the 2011 48 Hours Film Festival. This year I was on board with Sideways Productions and masterminds Allan George and Ben Fowler. They approached me to work with them last year, but I couldn't due to other commitments, so it was great to finally get things rolling with them. The genre we got was revenge movie, and Allan and Ben put together a good script. I packed up some gear and followed them around their two main locations, fine-tuning initial draft ideas as the structure and feel of the film came to life.

I was reasonably happy with the result, loved the feel of the music, but not so much the final edit of it in the film. Have a listen to a few of the tracks below:

Although initially gutted not to get through, the team were then awarded the "Sexiest Images & Sound" award for Auckland and therefore nominated for that award at the nationals. Well done guys.
