Whisperings review and film

2012

Directed By Chris Tevebaugh



This is the first film I've seen from South Carolina based director Chris Tevebaugh. I was impressed with the beauty of the short film when I first saw it and when I found out the film was made for $100 I was absolutely floored. This film is a perfect example of shooting with what you have. Much like Robert Rodriquez when making El Mariachi took an inventory of what he had (a guitar, a bus and a dog) and made it work. The film is shot on a 5D Mark II DSLR and it feels like it could have been shot by  Emmanuel Lubezki or John Allcott. Seriously it looks that good. Not only does the film look spectacular it wrestles with a tough subject. The film is essentially about racism and how it is spread. If this is what Chris Tevebaugh can do with $100 I would love to see him with a full length feature and a budget. Enough of my yammering, watch this movie.
