Short Film Shots and Update

The other day while filming our short film I took some nice photos and I thought it would be nice to share them with you. We made a Alice In Wonderland style film with a more modern twist, as well as helping to produce it, I was lead actor, playing Alice! It was four days of filming in the freezing cold with a small dress on, in the middle of the woods, it was exhausting but a lot of fun seeing our plans come together! The film centres around a girl called Alice Heart who after an argument with her mum, runs to her bedroom crying, when she stops she notices a door opening and enters into "wonderland." When she arrives she finds her brother James at a long table covered in cakes, sweets and tea, he makes her understand why her mother worries about her and a flashback reveals that James was involved in a car accident and passed away. Her best friend Cat then appears and leads her to photos of herself hanging in the trees. The character of James is a more modern version of the mad hatter and Cat is the cheshire cat. We wanted the film to combine reality and dreams but in a more realistic way.

Now onto a little update, on Wednesday it's my last day at university before we leave for christmas, the past three months have been absolutely exhausting, mentally, physically and emotionally! If you don't know, I study Media Production at uni, it's a very full on course and consists of pretty much 100% group work. Before I started, some third years told me to "say goodbye to your social life" and oh boy were they right! I think a lot of people assume that freshers do no work and only have a couple of lectures a week but it's been exhausting. The last few weeks have been especially hard and for the next few weeks blogging may have to take a backseat as having spare time again means that I want to spend time, working out and spending time with my family and friends which I haven't had any time to do for the past few months so blogging may be a bit sparse for the next few weeks! 



  1. Third years said the same to me, totally see why now haha hardly time to breathe let alone socialise! Glad you're enjoying it though xx

  2. Gorgeous photos! Wishing you a Merry Christmas! Enjoy your break!
