'NOISE' - (2014)

Format: 35mm (Fujifilm) / DCP

Director: Paul Surety

Production Company: Surefire Communications

 

SYNOPSIS:

 

A lyrical meditation on the emotionally damaging effects of adult conflict on children. 'Noise' is also a restrained, uninvasive study of the restorative effects of dance and the positivity of the creative arts on young minds.

 

PRODUCTION:

 

'Noise' is my second collaboration with Director Paul Surety.

From the very beginning, the project was intended to not contain any sync diagetic sound, and instead to be driven by a haunting, powerful score. As such, the film has a strong visual sense, leaning heavily on performance and composition to effectively communicate the situation that our young protagonist finds herself in.

 

The production required a number of particularly demanding camera setups, one of which encompassed a two and a half minute steadicam move (operated by Abramo De Licio) during the penultimate scene.

 

Originated on Fuji Vivid 500T in the 2-perf 35mm format, the film was shot spherically with Zeiss Super Speed lenses for a final aspect ratio of 2:35:1


Colourist Toby Tomkins (Cheat) graded the film from uncompressed 2K files provided by iDailies (London), who also provided film processing for the production. 
 

'Noise' will be entered into a number of prestigious film festivals, both in the UK and Internationally. The film will make its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
