Wandering down Featherston Street, Wellington this morning I noticed what seemed to be a large scale Roadworks operation underway. Upon closer inspection and with the removal of my mp3 earplugs, it proved to be none other than the Indian produced remake of a remake ‘Players’. The film, well movie itself is based on ‘The Italian Job(s)’, either that or ‘Goodbye Pork Pie’ which I hear is also being filmed nearby.
Everytime I see a film production it’s exciting, like the frame in which they inhabit is a world free from the rules of a world outside. A world that makes it’s own rules within a creative freedom only ever expressed or experienced by writers, painters and musicians.
I wasn’t so excited about this particular production, I saw the production at two stages during the day and it seemed as if it was moving pretty slowly.
I’ve been writing this script lately and it’s taken some pretty interesting turns, I feel so inspired sometimes. I think I may rent out an orchard warehouse in the winter and film on a homegrade Canon with a Depth of Field filter and lens hood. Attach a rig, buy some lights and then spend six months in post. Making something beautiful. That’s what I want to do.
