KITCHEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL

See this film at the GadZook Video page!

Part of the 6 Short Films Project

Sometimes appearances are not what they seem. In this parody of the wholesome American family commercial, good home cooking and the moms who cook them, often have other things simmering below the surface.

It's gratifying to me to be able to put something together and find all the right pieces to make it work, and bring it under budget. We initially planned for this to be shot on film (16mm) but scratched that idea due to cost. I found the perfect actors through our auditions (and there were a LOT of good actors to choose from!) and the crew was, as usual, superb getting everything together.

We shot this on the Panasonic DVX-100 in 24p mode. I edited using Final Cut Pro.

Special thanks to our hosts at the Blue House. DVD of all the 6 Short Films coming soon!

Offical selection of the NW Film Forum's Local Sightings Film Festival 2004!
