‘For Heaven’s Sake’
The second of the Video Collectives weekend films. A lot of recording time and sound editing was needed for adding all the audio in post. My role was quite a large one in this: key elements of the plot, acting, directing bits, video editing, sound editing, visual effects. Quite a memorable weekend with a lot of good people.
I played another religious character in this one.
The film even has some visual effects done by Jeroen, the main character. I did do some masking. Boy, is that a lot easier now.
Having run on several festivals, winning awards, the film finally went online in 2011.
Here’s some info from the vimeo page:
Black comedy by the Usva videocollective from Groningen.
In a usually quiet village dead bodies start to fall from the sky. The local priest knows more…
Filmed in one weekend (autumn 2006) with a dv camera and lots of fun and fire. This movie saw the first naked appearance (not the last!) of Joep Veldhuis. Great music by Sarah Stiles. Starring jeroen Meijer as `the priest’ and Frank Boxman as `Saint Peter’. Camera by Arno Cupédo.
