Here’s this week’s ‘trailer for a fake movie’ that my friends and I have put together. This one’s more epic, higher production value (twenty odd quid instead of a fiver and a packet of crisps) and therefore took a lot longer than 24 hours to complete…
The initial filming for this project began shooting earlier in 2012 under the working title ‘Atom Heart Mother’ – an idea developed by my friend Rokas Baniunas, a Lithuanian film student. Originally intended to be a surreal art film set to the Pink Floyd song of the same name, we filmed sporadically over a six month period. The project eventually got shelved due to course work we all had to do and other projects took priority.
Last week we planned to use some of the footage that we’d shot alongside new footage (filmed this weekend on Friday and Saturday). We then spent Sunday doing the editing, SFX, sound, colour and voice over. A tip of the hat has to go out to my friend Dave Roberts for being the man at the computer. He has to listen to myself, Rokas and Axle constantly barraging him with suggestions, opinions and instructions about what comes next, how this should be cut etc etc. Dave is a true professional in this respect and our combined efforts coupled with a bit of dedication, hard work and commitment is starting to yield us some results. Cougar Films is blossoming, please join us! We do of course, get a kick out of making these films, if it ain’t fun, it’s not worth doing!
Well, without further ado, here it is, the latest and greatest tasteless effort from four lads in Wales who love to make films! Please share this with any friends you have who just might enjoy it, we could really use the free publicity and we’d very much appreciate your help!
