Mercury Wine

       Every year, by the time the school year is ending, my film class pretty much wraps up all the work and finishes all the final touches on each film before showing it in the annual Film Festival. During these last few weeks most people wouldn't bother making any new films and would just hang on to the ones they have already done for the festival. But last year, I had a movie idea for something I had been wanting to make for a long time. My friend also loved the idea and really wanted to make the film with me, we then got some help with a few other friends and were able to create the film: "Mercury Wine" 
       The title is named after a Dame Darcy song that we were originally going to use in the video, but we found another one of her songs much creepier and used that instead. When we screened the film to our class, everyone began to look at all of us in a whole new way; they pretty much thought were crazy. Artistic, but indeed crazy. Most people seemed to really like it, they said it really freaked them out but it was put together pretty well. I took that as a huge compliment, not just because they liked how I put the film together, but how we took people by surprise and really scared them at the same time. Here it is... Enjoy!
