I still have not had a chance to post anything here about the third film I am working on, as a Director of Photography, for my dissertation project. Having heard Katrina (dir.) and Catarina's (prod.) pitch I decided to join that production. What I found particularly attractive in the way they presented their idea for the film is the positive energy they came across with, as well as their passion towards the project. I normally would not see myself working on a romcom but The Unfortunate Fate of Felix Hill is quite a unique one, as it does not have the predictable happy ending. It reminds me a little of my favourite romcom, 500 Days of Summer, which is one of the director's references. The main reason I chose this film for my dissertation is because I thought it would be a nice refreshment to work on a comedy, instead of another drama. I have already worked with Insert Name Productions last year and the good thing is their crew remained quite similar so I am sure we will feel comfortable working with each other. Another good thing about working with Katrina is the fact that she has got a lot of experience as a DoP, therefore she is very considerate of the visual side of her film and that is one quality I am after when choosing a director to work with.
The Unfortunate Fate of Felix Hill is a romcom fantasy about a boy called Felix Hill, who has the disadvantage of being forgotten about every 3 minutes. What makes matters even worse? – He is in love. We want to explore the themes of strong friendships and sacrifice, as well as the phrase “You don`t know what you’ve got until it’s gone”.
"The idea for this script came to me when I was watching an episode of the BBC series Doctor Who. There are these creatures called The Silence who you forget all about when you look away from them. I took that concept and asked myself how this would affect a normal human. Thus, Felix Hill was created. I have also drawn some inspiration from the movies 50 first dates, directed by Peter Segal, Groundhog Day, directed by Harold Remis, and a Korean movie called The Beauty Inside, directed by Baek Jong-yul." - Katrina
