Ghost - Short Film
A transient visitor takes sanctuary in a familiar place.
This is a suspenseful, observational short I wrote, that Pernell Marsden was kind enough to direct.
Ghost made its world premiere at the BAFTA qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2022, and Australian premiere at the Heart of Gold Short Film Festival 2022.
Back in 2018,19 I lived in an apartment block in South Yarra, in amongst other apartment blocks. I always wondered if people could observe me through my large apartment windows as I go about my daily routine on my days off.
This formed the nucleus of Ghost, as we observe the day-in-the-life of someone as they roam throughout a strangers house. But are they a stranger? How often do they do this? Are they going to get caught? A short film that begs questions.
We had to maneuver around Covid-Omincron during this shoot, but this incredible cast and crew did a fantastic job.
