SHORT ABOUT THE VIDEO:

Trench – war made on a £30 budget

Edinburgh-based filmmaker Sabine Klaus shows how to get a cinematic look on a zero budget. In April 2008 she teamed up with dance duo Company Chameleon to produce the promo ‘Trench’ for their upcoming show ‘Rites’.

The slightly abstract story is performed by Anthony Missen and Kevin Turner who portray two young soldiers going to war in an unknown land. Suddenly they are confronted with the real terror of bombs and living in a daily angst of getting shot. Those extreme emotional situations bring them closer together as friends. Until one of them realises the senselessness in the suffering while the other one seeks the moment of glory.

After studio rehearsals, storyboarding and a rekkie, the trailer-style video was filmed outside Penicuik at night and the budget was spent on torches, petrol and energy bars. Director of Photography and Editor Klaus shoot the entire project on a Canon HV20 and then finalised it in Final Cut Pro with special effects added in from After Effects.

Shooting at night-time generated an accentuated look while the hand-held torches enhanced the performers’ movements. The overlaid footage creates confusing parallel scenarios as well as reflecting the protagonists lost sense of space and emotional disorientation. The sound produced by Al Lorraine mirrors the actions; one soldier is building a human rifle out of his comrade whilst a gun being put together is audible.

Meanwhile the 4-minute video premiered at the IAM-Digital Event and a short version of Trench is currently broadcasted on Virgin Media Shorts .
