So we made this little movie … an arthouse piece in a world that plainly isn’t. In the movie, we’re wearing masks … well, in the latter stages we’re wearing masks plural seeing as we had only one mask when we began filming and had to share it. It wasn’t until I came across a supply of masks in Chapel Street in Melbourne over the final weekend that we were able to appear together both wearing masks. But that’s an aside.

It’s a strange feeling to be wearing masks in public, on the street, in coffee shops and shopping malls. Noone seemed to think it particularly odd, we didn’t get asked to leave anywhere and anywhere people did look a little alarmed we just assured them we were “making a movie” and everything was fine! One thing I did notice though was that when I was masked, people I was flashing a reassuring smile to as they walked past or lingered couldn’t actually see said reassuring smile; just some nodding weirdo in a mask.

I did take the opportunity to take some stills as we were shooting but likely nowhere near as many as I perhaps should have 🙂

Here’s a few.
