Concrete's Guy Morley Wins Award For Another Thing

Concrete has announced that one of its top talented editors, Guy Morley was awarded the Film and TV Editors Association for Best Editing Award at the 17th Archipelago International Film Festival of Short Films in Rome in June 2009 for his outstanding editing on short film titled: Another Thing.
The film also won the Winner's Kodak Award for Best Cinematography at the 17th Archipelago International Film Festival. Guy has a vast list of high profile projects he has worked on over the years, namely Doha Debates, Leona Lewis' Footprints In The Sand, Leona Lewis' Better In Time, Cash In The Attic, Discovery's Deadliest Catch trailers, Duffy's Stepping Stone, Mark Knopfler's True Love, Maroon 5's Goodnight Goodnight, New Ivory Wars, David Jordan's The Making of... and Duffy's Rain on your Parade amongst many more.
Another Thing was the first Red One camera drama project for Concrete who worked on the full post production of the film, which involved cutting footage, to grading, DI, vfx and compositing as well as audio design and sound effects. It was written and directed by talented former actress, Ilaria d'Elia who has now moved full time into screenwriting and directing.
Produced by Derry Wilkinson and Executive Produced by Matthieu de Braconier, who runs Cinema Extreme (the short film scheme funded by the UK Film Council's New Cinema Fund and Film4's Lab).
The film is a Sticky Moon Production, filmed by Director of Photography Simon Minett using the Red One's camera. Guy Morley, a highly experienced editor at Concrete worked on all the editing of the footage for the film on AVID Adrenaline and commented: "I didn't see the twist coming when I first read the script, it caught me by surprise. Also the film works well with the Red One camera - it looks great and it is also a great camera to use when working within tight budgetary constraints."
The photography is beautiful with scenes that engage the viewer skilfully. The plot is alluring with an intriguing expose which is an outstanding accomplishment for a ten-minute time frame. Illaria D'Elia said: "It's a bit of a 'who-is-who'? piece, playing with timelines and atmosphere. I wanted to create a world which was ordinary, but at the same time hauntingly beautiful and cinematic. When Simon Minett and I sat down to talk about the project, he suggested to shoot it on a Red One camera. We did some tests and I was immediately sold. I think it gives you a quality of image that is very filmic, only comparable to 35mm, but without the costs associated to it. It's also very versatile, as we found out in pot, because the files retain such a lot of information, which are a joy to work with. I was very lucky to collaborate with such great professionals, from Simon Minett, the DoP, who gave the piece its European flair, through to Guy Morley, the Editor at Concrete, who skilfully put it all together, to Victor Riva at Concrete, the grading operator, who gave life to the images, with a pastel palette grade. Everybody at Concrete was great and helped us out."
Victor Riva, Grading Specialist and Online Colourist, graded the film in HD using the cutting edge technology at Concrete's state-of-the-art DI suite. Senior Audio Designer Dino Sofos and Peter Woolliscroft, Audio Designer at Concrete, worked on all the sound effects for the film, using subtle clever effects to enrich the visual experience and to give it impact. The main task was to re-create credible atmospheric sounds for the interior of buildings using various techniques.
The sound of children's voices and laughter were placed into an empty school to make it sound as if children were really there. Another challenge Concrete's Audio Post designers overcame was to work with the exterior interfering traffic noise and replace it with post atmospheric sound which wiped out the editing and cutting reverberations.
The film will also be in competing at the Salento International Film Festival in September this year. Further details are available at:
