& 39;If you are watching this video, then you are dead...& 39;
Gertrude Gumm is dead, however that doesn& 39;t mean her life is over....
Gert is a young ghost, hosting an informational video for the GFI (Ghost& 39;s Film Institute) about beginning life as a ghost, where she shares the little known secrets of ghostly life. Beware! They are everywhere..Time honoured myths are revealed as we are taken on a tour of a ghost& 39;s daily life. The perks of having nobody to stop you can turn just as easily turn into the disappointment of having nobody to notice you. From spying on the naked, to being stuck in a bad outfit for eternity, Gert shows us the sequel to life and teaches us how to live when you& 39;re not alive.
We are shooting our short film over the period of one week, predominantly within a studio setting, thus allowing us to really stylise the & 39;ghost world& 39;. We are also shooting on 16mm film.
We are working with a wonderful actress called Natasha Coppola-Shalom who originates from New York. She is an extremely talented actress experienced in both stage and screen acting and we are very excited to be able to say that she will be playing the part of & 39;Gert& 39;.
The film will be a very fun and playful piece, one that will appeal to all ages and backgrounds, however we do rely on any kind donations we receive to produce the film. Any donations that we receive will go directly into the project, helping us buy props, buy and develop film and build sets.
