This is part of a series of posts from the filmmakers previewing the different films that will be screened at Portsmouth Short Film Night.
MonkeyDribble Films is made up of two brothers. We are James and Christopher Norton, originally from South Africa, but are now based in Portsmouth, England. We are passionate filmmakers wanting to produce high quality films for people to enjoy:) We started out producing music videos for local bands and over the last year turned our hands to producing short films. ‘Mum’ is the fourth film we have produced.
The idea behind MUM was initially to do something to bridge the gap between projects. We had just finished shooting a Sci-Fi short which had a lot of Post, so we wanted something small to keep us busy. We came up with the concept and wrote the script in a few days and then booked the actors for the next sunday. The two actors and us all got up really early, and filmed it all in one day. We did some rewriting of the script on set and did write a whole new scene that day that we felt was needed. Mum for us was a great piece that showed us what we can achieve with no budget, a small team and not a lot of time. We hope you enjoy!
Come to Portsmouth Short Film Night on Thursday, May 9 at 7:00pm in The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH to see this and the other great short films being screened!
