I was invited to the premier of the short film "Crucible" by Rickroy "Quest " Williams - Writer/Actor/Director/Editor || Writer/Artiste/Producer/Engineer. The film stars Rickroy "Quest" Williams, Darren Lindsay, Alexia Young and Richard Gardner. The Director of Photography was Wentworth Kelly, Producer Adrienne Pinnock, Production Assistant Shari Kelly, Assistant Director & Audio Mixer & Film Scoring Asst. - Ariff Butler just to name a few of the crew members . The premier was in Mandeville on the roof of Regie's Bistro https://www.facebook.com/regiesbistro.
The event got off to a late start as the actor ran into some problems on the way. You know how these things go, Murphy's law always kicks right when you are about to do something really important. None the less, when the movie got underway, everyone sat back and got immersed in the story. Without giving too much away, it is a story about a man who faces several tests in his life as a consequence of his actions. Faced with the tragic reality of several events he must make a choice to change. A change he is not sure he can make, because he has only ever one way of life.
The movie was 23 minutes long, shot with a Black Magic Pocket Camera. The cinematography, both day and night shots were good and for the most part the acting was good. What really stood out, was it's sound track. Excellent lyrics that truly fit every aspect of the story telling. This film was really a portfolio piece for the young actor "Quest" who showcased a variety of talent.
I caught up with the actor and director to find out what plans they had for the film and it seems you will get to see it soon on youtube and vimeo. Look out for it, it's a pretty nice watch that speaks about a very prevalent topic in our society. Check out some of the pictures from the event.
I am a Filmmaker, Animator and Writer. I love telling stories and making them come true. You will see me on the big screen soon enough.
