THE ANNIVERSARY

 

A 48 HOUR COMPETITION

SHORT FILM

MEDIUM: Video

ROLE: Editor

DURATION: 6:16 minutes

 

This short film is done for The 48 Hour Film Project (Singapore). Written, shot and edited in just 48 hours, this film had to be in the Detective/cop genre; it had to include the line of dialogue "Look at what you just did, you..." as well as a character named Mr or Mrs Anderson, President; and had to include the mandatory prop of a set of BBQ tongs! The film was shot on location at the Pearl's Centre, Singapore.

 

Set in a dilapidated shopping centre, a nervous middle-aged Caucasian lady seeks to sell a property, a building she lauds as a historical landmark. Elsewhere, a spirit detective tests the air for beings of the netherworld; the sale of the building dependent on his findings. A film with adaptation of all elements of your usual thriller/horror feast, Leo admits the similarities The Anniversary share with The Shining (By Stanley Kubrick) as purposeful and calculated, such as the adopting of the “one-point perspective”.
