A Weekend in Venice

30th March 2009

A Weekend in Venice by Screenwriter & Director Ellie Brent
The short film about romance and misadventure.
Film Location: Brighton

The film begins with a couple, Deanna and Dave, on there way to Brighton for a romantic weekend away, until the weather turns cold and mysterious things begin to happen... Dave falls asleep into a dream and finds himself venturing out into a midnight Carnival of Venice which is taking place within the corridors and rooms of the hotel...

My Costume went from...this feathered hat into a change for white hair...mmm


In this film I auditioned to be a ballroom dancer of the dream scene, joint with other professional contemporary dancers. We had a couple of crazy waltzing rehearsals and flew straight into costume. Unfortunately being a tall dancer I had the position of the male part, however its amazing how much one can change with a mask and white hair.

Everyone worked together fantastically and it was a great day doing something crazy and new.
