About the Story.
Jay has lost custody of her 5 year old son. Determined to see him on his birthday, Jay goes on a physical and mental journey that she can't turn back from and as the day unfolds unexpected situations begin to unravel for her.
This short film has been a long time waiting, waiting for the technology to be at a level I need in order to shoot the style and story of DEAD EYE. I wanted the right story for me to really push the capabilities of the new 10 bit recording in the iPhone 12 pro max using FiLMiC Pro. The ability to shoot in 10 bit on a mobile is still in its early days and it was important for me to explore this and be apart of its development.
I describe the film as a kitchen sink drama slash thriller. There are many serious elements to the story that I wanted to convey including mental health and domestic abuse but mix it more with the pace of a thriller to entertain the audience but also to leave them with the thoughts around the key issues.
