Visual Styles - Present day
We are observing Marty’s life -
He may be letting us into his mind
but he’s still trying to keep us at a
distance, he has stuff to do after all.
Shots are overhead, Wide, or Medium Shot
with specific close ups.
Movements are slow and smooth,
occasionally dramatic cuts to CU to dramatise the situation.
Shots are harshly lit, with the use of
shadows and silhouettes to convey
how he is hiding away from
the outside world.
Colours are earthy, retro oranges, greens
and browns, showing his world that he has
created “versus” his memory that
he has created.
SET DESIGN BY
The Earthy, retro colours are included within the set design.
Marty’s home is not sterile, or minimalist but everything has it’s
place and everything is there for a
reason. Be it because of an
associated memory or something
There’s a distinct abstract feel to the overall design of the film.
Marty likes to give items a second
life, he doesn’t feel comfortable
with the idea that something can be tossed aside so easily.
This mimics how he repeats his
in his mind and finds it hard to let
go of things that other people
would not be bothered by.
FWOAN was shot on location in Reigate, Surrey.
Thanks to friends and family for their house's and St Mary's Church
The FWOAN soundtrack has an eighty's Synth Pop influence.
Beautifully composed by Alex Williamson featuring his track Heelwalker
Featuring 'PLAY THE GAME' by FORETASTE
'I FALL TO PEICES' by GRAEME CLARK
FWOAN fits in perfectly with Graeme’s ideals and concepts around finding new ways of getting his music out there.
His other day job, in WET WET WET, usually kept him busy.
"It’s been exciting working on a forward thinking Short Film around the complex issues of OCD and I’m very happy to be part of the musical process”.
