Back in April a client asked me if I would help her to make a short erotic film about her experience of hiring me. Our date was one step in moving forward in her life and getting over a bad marriage. The film was to be entered in the Petra Joy – Joy Award, a short film contest for first time female directors of erotica.
The journey through script writing, storyboarding, filming, post production editing, sound recording, score production, and then rendering of the finished movie was an amazing experience. Not something that I have ever done at such a serious level.
The result was a short film (3 minutes 40 second long) that was unanimously voted to be the best submitted to the award this year. Interestingly the second prize went to a woman in Melbourne! So Australia was well represented in the Joy Awards this year.
