film director + co-founder longship films
22 march 2021
Kristjan shares the journey from an idea sparked at a film festival in Cardiff to having directed two feature films with a new method of movie production. The approach can be called ‘seat of the pants filmmaking’ or even ‘agile filmmaking.’ We talk about the experience of the latest feature, Exposure, and how that went from almost complete failure to marvellous story. As Producer on these project, Chris also shares his perspective on the journey. This conversation is part of the 48 Hour Film Project series.
I’m a filmmaker. That is what I do. That is what I love. As a freelance filmmaker I have produced corporate videos, commercials and digital content for various brands and companies. In narrative fiction I have directed three feature films, over 15 short films and I have a new feature script and a number of shorts in various stages of development and completion, as well as a unique crossover TV/Youtube format.
I’m an all-round content creator. I can produce, I can shoot, I can write, I can edit and I can do the sound design. I’ll even take a good stab at designing the poster. My main focus and skills are in directing, with story structure and working with actors as my specialties.
