Smudgerhunt Short Film Projects

Smudgerhunt Film on Vimeo, now has its own Vimeo Pro account and I’m starting to upload videos produced from 2013 to date. Unfortunately some are private and not available to the public as they are in competition in selected Film Festivals in the United Kingdom and around the World or have been made for clients and are still in final production stages.

Feel free to view and comment on any of our videos and please subscribe to be the first to see our new work as soon as it is uploaded.

We currently have over 3 films in production, 2 are in the final stages of editing and sound design and 1 is currently in production with filming expected to be completed by the end of August 2015. 2 films are in planning stages but are due to start filming by the end of the year.

Expect to see new films; a short drama, one very experimental film, a Horror, a comedy and more films about motorcycling and motorcycle culture. Here’s a taster from ‘Triumph Bonneville’

This short film about the Triumph Bonneville is being filmed in 4K and while this YouTube version was shot in HD at 1080p the 4K version will have a significant jump in quality. I’m hoping to record higher quality of sound from the Triumph itself  capturing the sound of the barking exhaust which is strangely muffled in this example and with too much wind noise. (Maybe this is a good reason to fit louder exhausts?)

Abjection - Tanya MarieTanya Marie – Costume

Tanya Marie is a 23 year old Textiles Artist, Costumier and Workshop Teacher located in Bournemouth, Dorset. She graduated from The Arts University Bournemouth with a BA (Hon’s) in Costume with Performance Design where she undertook an extensive course of studies including historical costume, textiles techniques and costume for stage and screen. Throughout her degree Tanya Marie taught workshops in crochet, knitting and textural elements. Her favorite workshop to date was teaching crochet tea party items such as swiss rolls and cakes, which could be turned into key rings, soft, play sets and dangle bookmarks. Balloons for Children Disability group noticed her way of including everyone in all workshops and asked her to stay on as a disabilities teacher. Tanya Marie still runs workshops all over the south coast and loves to see others creativity and visions emerge.

Tanya Marie’s love of sewing and crafts came from her mother who always made sure she has a fully stocked sewing kit and from a young age she has never been far from a needle and thread. Her first costume was a flower fairy from A Midsummer Nights Dream and from this project she continued onto making an elfin dress and several dance costumes. Throughout her GCSE’s and A Levels she was constantly making one outfit or another and her final costumes, two dresses inspired from the book ‘Of Bees and Mist’, gained her second place in the Bookrooms inspiration competition, alongside second place in the costume in nature competition. It was these awards that prompted her to continue down the path of costume and apply to the BA (Hon’s) program.

She was welcomed by the crew to help finalise the “Abjection” body suit which consisted of attaching several pieces of armour to the base costume and working to a very quick deadline.

Currently she is working as a Workshop Leader in Fashion and Costume for disabled students as well as a Trainee Teacher on the Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset SCITT Program.
