Seriously, what sort of creative director would ask a performer to be filmed lying on sharp rocks and being washed over by waves at a beach on a cold, grey and wet fucking Melbourne winters day? OOPS, that would be me!
But when the topic of this short film is about Mental Health Awareness neither rain, hail or cold temperatures was going to deter or delay me in wanting to get on with the start of shooting. The plus side, it never feels like really hard work when awesome and efficient Josie is the cinematographer, as we always end up having lots of laughs along the way!
Most surprisingly, I actually found it quite relaxing lying motionless on the rocks, just listening to the sound of the waves rolling in!
