2018: Currently in Production.
Settlers is a short film that follows the story of a young couple and their attempts to rekindle a dying relationship. A retreat by the sea offers a glimmer of hope but their future together balances on a knife edge.

Shot on #CookeS4 on the #ARRIAmira at 3.2k on location by the sea near #Weymouth. Richard says "The S4's were the perfect choice for us as we were shooting a lot of wide angle close ups in scenes where the characters had little to say but told the story through their emotions. The 25mm was very forgiving on the edges and served to draw attention to the central, sometimes symmetrical, framing that Matt and I employed. The proximity of the camera mixed with the 'Cooke look' allows us to feel incredibly close to the characters as we understand their struggle. The film is mostly night interiors, shot both day for night and night for night. Practical lighting was employed to bring a reality to the light in the characters worlds as well as LED #skypanels being employed to allow us to shoot quickly. This was thanks to the expertise of #gaffer Ben Skyrme. The tight interior locations meant that rigging the camera to achieve the shots that myself and the director planned required some creativity from the wonderful camera crew. There was some relief as we shot some 'dreamy' day exteriors on remote beaches by the south coast. The location was incredibly beautiful and we were fortunate to have warm weather despite it being November. "

The film is currently in #postproduction with a completion date set for the end of April 2018. Following this the film will be entered into festivals. 
We wish them well & will watch this space.
