STORYBOARDS

A selection of Storyboard drawn by MIKE COSFORD

 

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

Olivia Venables

 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 

he needs.

Read the blog...

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 

own memories.

 

in his mind and finds it hard to let 

go of things that other people 

would not be bothered by.

 

Official stills

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”.
