A short summary
We are aiming to raise £400 to fund our film 'Apogee' for our 3rd year independent film project as part of our BA Filmmaking course. The story follows a fictional interview set in 1987 between a reporter and an ex-astronaut, whose traumatic experience upon the Apollo 17 mission caused him to become a solipsistic existentialist.
Who We are
My name is Lydia and I am the Producer for this project, I am also working with a group of 3rd year BA Filmmaking students:
Director/Writer - Emily Murphy
Director of Photography - Nina Gubatan
Assistant Camera - Emily Rose
Art Director - Zoe Small
Editor - Muhammad Amputra
Sound Designer/Recordist - Sarah-Louise Davila
This film is an ambitious venture into the world of period drama. This is a notoriously difficult genre of film to tackle as low-budget students, however we plan to bring life to a story that focuses on the complexity of characters, dialogue and visual aesthetics presented in art direction. The characters will explore a range of topics including the history of space, solipsistic reality vs. perceived reality, and detachment.
As a crew, we all share an interest in intellectual cinema and are excited to experiment with new techniques while bringing this film to life!
