I know Ive mentioned this once or twice before but some time back, I made a short film that I submitted to various film festivals. The film's called Island Odyssey and focuses on the natural attractions of Kangaroo Island in South Australia. I know it might seem strange making a trailer for an 8 minute film but those are the rules set forth by some festivals. Eventually, after submitting my film to a bunch of festivals around the world, it was selected for screening at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festivals. By the way, this was the first time that Ive made a trailer so it was a new experience for me.

Nice work Dragonblade.  Congrats for the selection. 

How many hours footage do you think you took to cut down to 8 minutes.  Do you go out solo when you collect footage?  Must be a very centering almost spiritual way to spend your days!  Although I get paid every time I go out, it sure must beat shooting 300 soccer players under the age of 13 :)

Thanks Pixart. Ive never done a count or even a rough approximation for the hours of filming / shooting. However, some of that footage was accumulated over the years without a specific objective (basically filming for filming's sake.) Then over a year ago, I came up with an idea of selecting the best segments of footage and editing them together to make a film. And then I went out and shot some additional footage specifically for the film as well. Then more filming and editing and re-editing. Yea this was mostly a solo project.

And I'm sure there'd be plenty of exciting moments shooting soccer!
