Preparing for a quirky exit by our lead actress.


“Measuring Matthew”, the short, black comedy I was DP on last year, is in the final stages of post, wrapping up color correction and audio mixing, with a cast screening targeted for this month, which will kick off its festival run. The film is being produced by Lions Way Films, in collaboration with Shemoon Films. Here’s the logline for the film:

A man on edge examines his failed relationship, vividly imagining what was, is, and might be.

I had a chance to see a rough cut a few months ago before any music or sound had been done, and it was looking good, with a number of funny moments already shining through. A number of us have been eagerly awaiting the post-production team to come up for air and share some news. Today, they released the poster for the film, designed by Boston graphics designer, Silpa Sadhujan! Take a look…

    Review on “Measuring Matthew”
    This is a brilliant piece of work, that explores the multilayered psychological eddies and currents swirling in the mind of the main protagonist Matthew, essayed with finesse by Nael Nacer. There are moments in the film, especially during the close-up shots, where the audience can literally palpate and empathise completely with the quietly smoldering mental turmoil of Matthew. The creative competence of the Chris Portal ( director of photography) and his able cameraman Corey Sheehan is to be seen to be believed. In this movie the camera is so deftly handled that, after the first 10 minutes of the film, one forgets that one is watching a film, but is actually witnessing a live events unfold, seamlessly. The editing has been accomplished by R J Placko in such a way, that the essence of the relationship crisis faced by the various characters is accentuated to a crescendo and wild imaginations of the main character, going through a rough-patch in his relationships is accurately highlighted. The pivotal roles of Jennifer played by Renee Rossi Donlon and June- played by Audrey Claire Johnson have been handled with grace and panache by the actors. This is a film that forces one to exercise the grey cells and gradually the story seeps into ones psyche.
    This is one of the best films of the decade and deserves to be shown on a wider platform.
