I DON'T SPEAK | My Rode Reel 2019


"I Don't Speak" is a short film about a silent woman. It was shot on location in Melbourne, Australia by a gender-balanced team of filmmakers. We implemented a low-waste set, limiting our use of single-use plastics and opting for recyclable, reusable materials in all aspects of production

We shot on a BlackMagic Ursa Pro and utilised a range of RODE gear to help create the hyper-real sound design that drives the film.

A highly montage-inspired piece, the soundscape created in post-production assists these punchy visuals to tell a quick, snappy and hopefully meaningful story.
