Secret Garden – a 2015 personal project 

I like to make films and I like my filming projects to be simple, fun and interesting. I usually make family oriented films with the occasional local production. How to make films without any real planning and still have fun editing? Then a couple of weeks ago I headed into the garden with my gh4 and slider and made the following short film.

When I started editing I realised I did not have much footage, so I re-edited the footage and spliced the music by half. The music that seemed to fit my footage was a piece called ‘secret garden’. This got me thinking into making more secret garden esque films as a personal project. My second film has more footage and included more cats. I also used classical based music as this seems to fit the mood of a secret garden.

I now plan to continue these secret garden projects through out 2015 and encourage any other hobby based film makers to follow suit.  

What is a secret garden?

It is my garden but all the micro interesting bits rather than any wide shots. Also the interesting wildlife that passes by – including the house cats.
