Liam Titcomb | Love Don’t Let Me Down
Rejected 05 /25/ 2012. What they made instead…
A summer walk through an unconventional cemetery, with portraits of the dead carved into trees.
Warm and sublime.
We will shoot at magic hour at the Scarborough Bluffs in Toronto.
Using carved foam and special effects painting, we will dress tree trunks in a rural area to appear as if portraits have been carved into them. Some of the portraits will look freshly carved, others will seem weathered, as if they were carved a decade ago.
We follow Liam as he wanders through the park visiting each of the unique portraits.
One of the carved faces has a dark mouth that opens into a hollow in the tree. It has been filled with bird seed. Birds and squirrels crawl in and out of the ancient wooden-head.
As the video ends, Liam begins carving a tree.
We see that Liam has carved the portraits of two figures facing one another.
Cut to black.
Aprox. 4 weeks after receipt of the production funds.
