New short film: The Space Between

Sep 13, 2011 | Posts, Film

A new film!
I’m currently working on a new short film, a dark comedy called “The Space Between”. It was written by my friend Andrew Hickson, owner of the best cocktail bar in Nijmegen: Absolute Zero. Currently we’re in pre-production, still punching up the script, scouting locations and planning our schedule. We’re also looking for companies or individuals to sponsor this production. Things we need would be catering, wardrobe, hair, make up. If you would like to help out by volunteering your skill or services, please let us know by contacting us through this site or on our Facebook Page. Our intention is to start filming somewhere in November over the course of a few weekends. Not much to say yet about a releasedate, but it won’t be before 2012 comes around.

Location
Set in a nightclub, the film is about a guy trying to win the heart of the girl behind the bar, losing himself along the way. The main location and castinglocation will be Absolute Zero, which has a very nice modern look and feel. Here are some stills:

 

Casting

We’ve planned two castingsessions on the 20th and 22nd of september. We’re looking for 3 male and 2 female actors. All the dialogue in the film will be in English. We are looking for an international cast, so any nationality is welcome. You will however have to speak… English!  During the castingsession the director and screenwriter will ask you a couple of questions to get a feel for who you are and you will be asked to play a short scene in front of a camera with another actor or actress. The film is being shot on professional equipment, however it’s low to no-budget, so this is something you would do for the experience and the exposure. We plan to submit the film to many filmfestivals and competitions.

If you feel like this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for please let us know by responding to one of the events on Facebook (link below)! If you have any questions, contact us through our Facebook Page. More information about the film and schedules will be available at the casting sessions.

Update 2012:

Unfortunately due to scheduling difficulties and time constraints, this project was put on hiatus indefinitely.

Released 5 years ago today – Summer Of ’92

5 years ago today Shipwrec released my CausaliDox EP Summer Of ’92. In this post I take a look back and talk about what the tracks mean to me.

Sampling into Assimil8or

Today I decided to sample some non-electronic instruments into my Eurorack sampler. A tabla, a cabasa, a wooden flute and some pillbottles.

A critic in time

Today I spent some time selecting poems I wrote in my early 20’s for the website. It feels strange to critique myself and my poetry 20-some years later.

A synth sci-fi short story

I’m not recording. I’ve decided to just let this happen. It’s been going on for a while now. And I think it is probably too late anyway.

Lost in a memory hole

I’m not sure what happened. I got lost in a memory hole tonight. Well, I can reconstruct it, sort of. And it’s not like it hasn’t happened before.

Bob Knutton – It Sates Itself On Doubt

Ventured into darker regions today, tribal modular drums, echoing and distorted thrust me into the gloom. I explain how I recorded the track and what gear I used.

CausaliDox on NTRFRNZ Radioshow

This past week the track There Is Nothing In The World from my CausaliDox album Between The Leaves Lies Eternity opened the excellent NTRFRNZ radio show in Brasil.

sonOnos – Tomorrow

Got lost in the machines today. It was nice. 

CausaliDox – Cohort Death Signal

I wanted to make the Pro-One sound dangerous. Things started building from there. It sounds like an existential threat.

website redesign finished

Over the past 6 weeks I have worked on redesigning my website. It was hard work, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because I am quite happy with the redesign.
