Cold Caller Love, by James Spinney (2011)
This week’s Film of the Week is one of the highlights from our November screening at Vibe Live. Produced on a budget of just £300, James Spinney’s Cold Caller Love is a beautiful example of what you can do with a great idea, a bag of talent, and one of them new-fangled DSLR cameras that everyone’s shooting on nowadays.
Subtitled ‘an intergalactic love story’, this is the story of a (suspciously) humanoid alien who finds himself in close quarters with a horse, and is, well… entranced.
Shot on a freezing February day with a pregnant horse that generally refused to play ball, James’ film uses the crisp clear image and cinema-quality depth of field (or lack of) of the Canon 5D to tell a really intimate and original story that – let’s face it – in less subtle hands might have been a little… wierd.
Cold Caller Love is currently up for Film of the Month on Shooting People. If you like it we encourage you to log on and vote for it.
