Exactly one year ago, I shot a short film called “Revisions”.
Directed by Mathieu Seguin, it’s a touching and often funny short, written by Shawn McLaren, about two best friends (played by myself and my dear friend Ryan Demers), who have grown apart over their mutual love of the same woman.
They are reunited in order to put on a play about their now deceased love, but each prefer to imprint their own memory of past events on the production.
And here it is…
The film also features Ricky Watts and Deven Stillar as the “stage” interpretations of Ryan and I, and Andrea Solski as the actress playing our mutual love interest.
It was produced by Motion Arc Studios and shot in one (long) day on location at the Jubilee Centre in Sudbury, ON.
The project was unique because it went from concept to camera in under a week (6 days to be exact). Mathieu called me on a Monday with the idea, I came on board and secured our location while he and Shawn collaborated on the script. We had table read on Friday and shot all day on Saturday. Post-production was completed in time to submit the film to the 2013 Cinefest Sudbury International Film Festival where it received its premiere on September 21.
You can see some on-set photos in a previous post here.
