On Friday 13th, October 2017, we released our second short film Juncture online to the viewing public. As the films producer, I am incredibly proud of what has been achieved with this film. While at most times it was a pleasure to produce, like anything worthwhile doing, there were also times of exceptional challenge. But helping to overcome all these challenges and create this now award winning short film were the amazing cast and crew, who I would now like to thank personally.
To the actors, beginning with Rowan Howard, and his 'Best Actor' award winning portrayal of the devastated and conflicted James Davey. Kieran Cochrane, with his brooding, cold and maniacal depiction of Danny Davey. Cris Cochrane, who was terrifying as the cunning and mysterious Shadow, while Paul Herbert portrayed perfectly, the heartfelt and supportive Dr. Adrian Hamill. And both Emily Joy and Suzie Whyte added a touch of acting class in their respective supporting roles.
Our exceptionally talented cinematographer Alper Kasap, who’s knowledge and finesse with a camera was realised in full, with the aid of his steadfast team of Taylan Ceylan (1st AC) and the hard-working Redouane Chaouki (Gaffer).
Jocea Brough spearheaded our art, SFX and make-up departments and worked countless hours with me in post-production, while Alex Wilson, hands-on, excelled as our production and costume designer. Michael Sallai was the man-of-steel, never wavering as our boom operator and assisted me in the sound department. And John Coco, for his original music and further assistance in the sound department.
Nicole Creely kept us focused and on-track as our production manager and also assisted in the make-up room, while Sam Creely was resolute with his continuity and script supervision. Our production assistant Connor Bashford kept the all-important coffee flowing and was always at hand to assist, while Rebecca Cooper, appropriately lurking just around a corner, captured timely snaps as our BTS and stills photographer. And Sheryl Hughes, Trish Creely and Edwin Creely had the supremely important role of ensuring our bellies were always full.
And of course, a very special thank you to the creative brains and film's visionary director, Primitive Films co-founder and my friend Luke Creely, without whom the film would never have been conceived in the first place.
Finally, I would like to thank my friends, family and all our supporters, without who’s support Juncture would not have been recognised as the film it is today.
So it's now onward and upward as we embark upon our new short film, They Can't Hear You. Stay tuned and check back often for updates and info on the next exciting Primitive Films production.
Cheers, Jack Coco (Producer)
