Giant In My Mind is a 40 minute short film which tells the story of two tragic lovers, Mickey and Olivia. Fleeing for their lives after Mickey murdered the man who beat and raped Olivia, we find the couple hiding out at an abandoned farm. As they begin to build their new life together, little do they know they are being watched.
As location recordist for the week long shoot on a rain soaked dairy farm in Gerringong, I wanted to accurately capture the environment of the location for use during the sound design process. The old barn and silo which can be heard creaking and echoing in the film had such character it helped evoke the tension of the plot and bring the sound of the lovers world to life.
