An advertising creative sets out on a journey to test out a new mini dv camera which mysteriously switches itself on and starts playing a scary version of his future. He has 3-4 minutes in which to avert a sticky fate.
I thought it would be fun to take an advertising guy with filmmaking ambitions who gets a mini DV camera only find the damn thing’s playing back his future in the darkest possible terms. When he sees that he’s about to be beaten up and left for dead, he has a choice to make. Is he going to be just another victim, or take control? Probably the most challenging part of the filmmaking process was the process of having to ask myself, which footage would go on the mini DV and which was to be live action? So I had to think two parallel stories all the way through – and at times it was a bit of a head****. In order that the footage on the mini DV matched up with the live action, I used two cameras, which made such a difference when I was cutting the fight and chase sequences.
