My Last Respects – Behind the Scenes of a One Shot
June 12, 2016 In General
If you have ever asked yourself how a take, scene or even whole film is made in only one shot with no cuts, I can tell you so much: It requires a lot of rehearsals and routine on behalf of all the crew members. With these behind the scene pictures, I want to give you an impression on how we shot “My Last Respects”, a 9-minute short film. (Note for Chrome users: please use your keyboard arrows to flip through the pictures!)
‘My last respects’ is a personal narrative of a real event. The script is written by life itself – broken down to the crucial emotions of a dramatic telephone call that turned out to be their last one. It is a story about love in the face of life and death.
