Once you make an award winning short film – are you going to keep on and make another one ? The answer to this question is Yes for Luke Snellin, whose name you may remember from my review of his previous film ” Mixtape ” . Luke Snellin’s new film is called Patrick and it deals with issues such as violence at school ( read bullying ) and the dreams of a young boy to get away from and/or deal with it.
The film already has had several screenings at festivals during the year and gathered quite a few awards. The response from the festival screenings was so good that it is planned to adapt Patrick into a feature film in 2010. The young Matthew Shanfari -who is cast in the leading role in “Patrick” – has some acting experience and talent which could not be missed by the audience. The film`s director setup quite a nice blog to promote his film ( on which you can also find out insights of its shooting and of the shooting of Mixtape ) and you should definitely pay it a visit.
While my impressions from the 11 minutes long ” Patrick ” are based solely on the trailer that is available online – I think that the cinematography of the film seems quite decent and I can`t wait for my chance to see all of it.
