LOST IN SPACE By Rhett Morita

Rhett Morita’s career as a Cinematographer began quickly and he was shooting major commercial campaigns for Air Canada, Coke, Labbatt’s, and Mcdonalds, within a few years of starting. During his D.O.P. career he has lensed over forty music videos including early videos for such bands as Blue Rodeo, and Brian Adams. He has also shot Gemini winning documentaries, and television dramas for WB, Disney, Nickelodeon, CTV, and CBS. In the mid-nineties he began to shoot television movies for Show Time, Disney, Columbia/Tristar, Lifetime and multi award winning films for Court TV. In a break between projects in the spring of 2003 he decided to write and produce a short film. “LIFE AFTER” is his short film directorial debut, premiering at the New York International film festival in October. Since then, he has written and directed five short film/videos.

 

12:01 By Mark Masoumi

 

12:01 is a short film about a couple relaxing in their home, about to watch a movie when they catch a disturbing broadcast on the news. Reports of an unidentified object hurdling toward Earth send the couple in to a state of disbelief. It’s here, in their final moments together that they come to grips with what is about to happen at exactly 12:01.

 

Taking a page from many filmmakers of today, Mark’s approach is the do-it-yourself method. He spent some time enrolled in film classes at Humber College, making several short films. Mark is now attempting to take his career to the next level. He worked as a Grip and a PA on several projects including two features films, to gain set experience. Taking the study of film and visual story telling as a serious hobby, Mark has made the efforts to learn the craft inside and out. Currently in the process of building up a professional looking director reel, he has several projects in development from music videos as well as a series of short films.
