Antiquated Kilter

“Antiquated Kilter” A short silent film – Follows seven days in the life of a humble and lonely old man. It’s a story of solitude, sentiment and longing for companionship.

When Omrane Khuder sent me through the script I was super excited to read it although when he said it was a silent film my first reactions were Silent…HUH. I can’t keep my mouth shut for that long hmmm this will be challenging!

Knowing how powerful the script was I wanted to build my emotions up and release them out on the day of filming,  to get a more natural response with my reactions. I walked on set and was greeted with such warmness and kindness. Everyone who was on set had previously worked on other projects and lived and breathed Melbourne’s film industry circle.  Meaning they are either studying, auditioning, networking, filming or assisting on film projects. I LOVE THIS it means they are 100% committed and it shows.

Omrane’s mind on paper is creative bliss, he brings human issues to the surface and creates touching, heartfelt moving images with brilliance and ease. His set is professional except when tying up actors in the kitchen cupboard as punishment for not following his rules.

Antiquated Kilter is written, directed, produced, cast and edited (pretty much hands on deck) Omrane Khuder, line and associate producer is the handsome Nicholas Tamouridis, cinematography and edited by Stewart Fairweather and make up department by Amy Lee Cameron.

With a great and talented cast Albert Goikhman as PAPA, Sandra Casa (myself) as PAPA’s Deceased Wife, the beautiful Danielle Butlin as PAPA’s Daughter and the cutest little grand daughter played by Sofia Geysman.

If you havn’t seen a silent film check it out! You won’t be disappointed and I’m not saying this because I and people I know are involved, but because it brings emotions out and it will be worth the 15 mins you put in the film. How do I know this you ask? Well when Omrane brought 50 people in to a private screening there was not one dry eye in the room. Now that’s impressive!

        What a pleasure it was to have Sandra Casa on my film set for Antiquated Kilter.
        Not only does Sandra exemplify the true meaning of professionalism, she motivates others.
        Not only does Sandra add tremendous value to each and every project she takes on, she dedicates herself to ensure an atmosphere of inspiration.
        No doubt, as long as I’m making films, Sandra will have a project to work on.

        As much as I love the recognition from a lovely dedicated creative,… I have to point out that I only really guided Omrane just enough for him to edit Antiquated Kilter together, it really is his baby, and it shows from how much heart and soul he’s dedicated to it.
        I will take credit for suggesting we drop the dialog out completely when we brainstormed our shotlist,… 🙂
        One of the things both Omrane and I love about this film, is that it gave three very talented Melbourne actors a forum to showcase their skills in conveying story through emotions and expressions – seeing the guests at our cast n crew screening reacting with the highs and lows of the plot, and yes, even the tears at the right moments, and knowing that the emotions the audience feels is proof that we were able to successfully tell the story, yes, that is a moment of joy and pride for me as Cinematographer, and for my mate Omrane as a Writer, Director, and Editor.
        And Bonus, getting to see Albert Goikman get his teeth in to a “Dramatic Lead” character role instead of the ‘usual typecast’ role, and show off his craft, that’s not work, not at all.
        Just wait till people see what he can do in a comedy,…..

        Yes it is Omrane’s baby and to have you incorporate your magical hands on the project and your technical expertise.
        Thank you for praising the actor’s on board the project and allowing us the opportunity to create our own emotions and expressions.
        Albert definitely pulled of the role of PAPA and it was great to see that it has brought his softer side out..
        This may very well give him more depth to what he can bring to the casting director’s perception of his previous work.
