“The Big Wild North” – short film by Tom Antos

My latest film “The Big Wild North” is finally ready and you can watch it right here.

I also have the behind-the-scenes and bloopers videos.

As I mention in the video, it took me a long time to finish this film. Although most of the film was shot in only four days in 2013 (with some pick-up shots in 2014), the post-production took a long time – mainly because I had to prioritize other (paid) projects.

This was one of the most relaxed and fun shoots I’ve had. We had a very small crew – just I and my brother. The cast was small too. Since we kept things to a minimum and we also all like and know each other well, there was no drama, no pressure. We had a fun, collegial atmosphere. So, I recommend making films this way – keeping the scale small and working with fun, talented people.

There are a lot of techniques and tricks that I used here that you can apply in your projects. Over the next several weeks, I am going to release a number of filmmaking tutorials based on this film. They are all going to be posted here. So, please remember to check back to learn more.
