LOLA - This film is by far the most beautiful film that we have created. Shot on vintage lenses, assisted by the kindest crew, shot on one of the most gorgeous properties, and featuring some amazing young talent. I’ve taught children for years, and they always ask to watch my films. Before now, I’ve only had one age appropriate film that I could show them, “Bernard Mops Up”. Being children, they would constantly ask to rewatch the film, and have me talk them through the process. Finally, a student asked, “when are you going to make a new film that we can watch?” Instantly, I began writing and finding artists to collaborate on the film with. We decided we wanted to create a surreal film for all ages, with all practical effects. Whether that be animatronics, fireworks, SFX makeup, whatever it took. We wanted to create a film that was for everyone, not just for kids, not just for adults, but a film that could mystify anyone who watched it. Three months into production and about 70% done, I’m so proud to have been able to work with these wonderful people, and look forward to being able to share the finished product. It’s truly a visual treat.
