Your new movie Heart Wreck - in a few words, what is it about?

 

When a girl washes up on the beach it's unclear how she got there, but one thing is certain, she is suffering from a broken heart.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing Heart Wreck, and (at least on a metaphorical level) is any of this based on personal experience?

 

Heart Wreck is a poetry short. The words are meant to compliment the images, but not necessarily illustrate them. The poem is about betrayal, heartache, and feeling utterly lost, and yes, it's inspired by real experience. When I wrote it, I had no idea it would become a short film, but some art comes from such a deep place that the artistic expression begs to be born until we, as dutiful artists, do everything in our power to bring it to life. So, in that sense, once the idea and visuals came to me, I had to see it through. I was very lucky to work with Big Tree Films on this. I couldn't have done it without Manx Magyar (DP), Isabelle Caplan (PM), and Geoff Bassett (colorist).

 

With Heart Wreck being a micro-short, clocking in at just 1 minute 30, what are the special challenges of making this short a movie?

 

We had about 4 mins of usable footage, so selecting the shots that best told the story was a challenge. But we knew going into it that Heart Wreck was a micro short, because I had pitched it as that. The poem had been recorded and mixed months before we actually shot the film. So when it came time to edit, we already had our audio.

 

You just have to talk about that beach where Heart Wreck was filmed, and what was it like filming there?

 

Heart Wreck was filmed in thirty degree weather at Nauset Beach in Orleans, MA., and Chatham Lighthouse Beach in Chatham, MA. Both locations were selected for various reasons. Orleans has big scenic waves that would make for a convincing shipwreck narrative, and Chatham had the historic beach hut. Filming on these beaches was an amazing experience. We were all very cold, but Cape Cod is such a beautiful place, we knew it would be worth it to suffer a little for the art.

 

How would you describe the overall look and feel of your movie?

 

Manx is an incredible cinematographer. He makes everything he shoots look like a painting. And I would describe the film that way, too. The colors are very vibrant, thanks to the natural beauty of the sky and sea, and Geoff Bassetts' amazing coloring. I suppose the beauty of the landscape juxtaposed by the pain in the poem gives the film a sad quality, but that was very much intended.

 

You're also the only actress to appear in front of the camera in Heart Wreck - so what did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and have you written her with yourself in mind from the get-go?

 

I've told a few friends I didn't dare hire a real actress to do this because of the freezing temperatures, but that's not entirely true. I always saw myself in the role, mainly because I wrote the poem and it's such a personal one. It was very cathartic for me to make this film--it brought up all the old pain again. But sometimes you need to revisit old heartache just to recognize how far you've come in the healing process.

 

With Heart Wreck having been entirely conceptionalized and shot during the times of Covid, did that at all inform the making of your movie?

 

Covid played a huge role. I doubt this idea ever would have come to me if we hadn't been in quarantine at the time. But that's the silver lining! Covid has forced so many of us to think in new creative ways about our art. If this film inspires even one frustrated filmmaker to get out there and make something, I'll be happy.

 

What can you tell us about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?

 

Did I already mention we shot this film in thirty degree weather? It was really cold. We probably should have waited for warmer temps, but we had already put this film off for so long that I think we were all just ready to get it made. And the on-set atmosphere with Manx and Izzi is always second to none. We laughed a lot. Mostly at ourselves for how dumb we were to shoot a movie on the beach, in the ocean, during the middle of winter.

 

The $64-question of course, where can Heart Wreck be seen?

 

Heart Wreck is on all Big Tree and GR Films streaming platforms: YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Vimeo. Make sure you check us out online!
