Bertie’s Short Films: Killed The Cat
Bertie’s most recent short (co-directed with Alia Hassan) was released tonight and it was quite experimental but genuinely fascinating to watch. Dark, ambiguous and slightly creepy, it was again different to any of his previous shorts which I really liked. Characters, plot and cinematography were also on point as usual but my favourite scene was one that included masks and flour and weird trance dancing (hence why I included it in this!)
I thought that a gif was appropriate for this project because there is something completely different and strange about this film, and I urge everyone who hasn’t seen it to do so at once! (even if it is almost 2am..) I hope you all like this!! Goodnight. 

Wonderful. She’s done it again

I Ship It premieres tomorrow, Thursday, October 16th at 9am ET/6am PT on youtube.com/yulinisworking! I’m excited about it like Christmas. Probably won’t sleep tonight. Just kidding if you’re my mom reading this. Watch our trailer here.

Tomorrow, Thursday 10/16 at 12pm PT/3pm ET, I’ll be hosting a livestream Q&A hangout with Mary Kate Wiles and Sean Persaud, who play Zoe and Charlie in I Ship It. Feel free to leave us questions about the short film in advance under the #i ship it film tag on Tumblr or #ishipitfilm on Twitter. We’ll answer as many as we can on air, though spoiler warnings will apply so I’d recommend watching the film before you watch the livestream! 

For those of you in the Toronto area, you’ll also have two chances this week to see I Ship It play in a theater at Buffer Festival! Tickets are $15 per screening. If any of you are planning on going pretty please let me know so I can experience it by proxy! Our screening times:

Bertie’s Short Films: 'Grey Area'

Bertie returns with his newest short film ‘Grey Area’, a sort of sequel to his last film ‘Tick Where It Hurts’. A beautifully coloured piece and it feels yet more mature than it’s predecessor, because of this I wanted to portray the same look I gave Tick but by adding the film texture the graininess is clear. I strongly urge everyone to watch this stunning piece of work, and I hope you like my take on the film posters!  

Side note: If you’re interested, I made all the other details I usually put on the poster almost unreadable because I thought that the film had such a clever and unusual use of contrast and garish colours so I thought I would try and translate that through the posters. 

she’s done it again! Wonderful :)

Status Report (What i’m doing and What’s happening)

Hello there. I just thought i’d write a little tumblr post to tell whoever’s interested what’s going on in my life and what to expect from me in the near future.

So i’m pretty damn busy right now! Which is nice because i’ve come to realise that i’m a bit of workaholic (when it comes to things I enjoy working on). I haven’t made three short films in seven months just because i’ve been creatively charged. I’ve also made these films because I have to keep myself busy and keep creating things or else I WILL DIE. *coughs* Well, maybe not die. But, you know, feel a bit rubbish. So yes in short, i’m busy. 

Last week we wrapped shooting our Ron Howard/Newform funded short film, Killed The Cat. If you don’t know what i’m talking about, basically Ron Howard and Brian Grazer have set up a company called Newform Digital. And this company’s first order of business is funding 14 filmmakers to make short films with the possibility of bigger projects in the pipeline. So along with lots of great creators, some i’m good friends with, me and my team have been working hard to create this short film. Which was a lot of fun shooting, especially because this time, I directed with my oldest friend, Alia. I’m editing it now and it’s been a very interesting and different experience. The current edit is 32 minutes and i’m happy, but with so much footage I want to take this opportunity to really experiment with the edit. I know there’s plenty of interesting things I can do with the story while editing and i’m excited to see what I come up with. I won’t reveal much, but Killed The Cat is the most surreal and complex of the films i’ve been involved in.

Now, regardless of when Killed The Cat is completed, I can’t release it until October. So in the meantime, I want to create a few other things. While I edit, i’m also currently writing another short film that I want to shoot by the end of the month. That’ll be a very natural film that celebrates life and has some comedy. The moment that film is done, I’m free to release it. I also want to create another ‘What’s The Story Here?’ thing along the lines of Diner and Many Moons. I like the idea of those shorter projects bridging the gap between the bigger ones. So my plan creating stuff wise for the next two - three months is to release a 5 minute lack of context film, a 15 minute short and our 25-30 minute Ron Howard funded film as well as some behind the scenes stuff. That’s what i’d like to do. Not promising anything. But you will see some things in the near future.

Another fun thing is that for a few days later this month or early next month (they haven’t told me yet), i’ll be jetting off to Toronto to sort out some Buffer Festival related stuff. If you don’t know what Buffer Festival is, in short, it’s a YouTube film festival. A bunch of filmmakers and creators will be screening films and so forth in cinemas for a few days. It’s gonna be a lovely experience and it’s good to see a side of YouTube that is rarely represented. Go filmmakers! So yes, that takes place in October and my plan is to screen Tick Where It Hurts, My next short and Killed The Cat followed by a Q and A hosted by Mitchell Davis. So yeah, in a few weeks i’m gonna do some interviews, photo shoots and maybe some directing all to hype up Buffer Festival. So that’s very nice and it’s incredibly humbling to be able to do these amazing things all because of the films i’m very proud of. I’m at a very happy stage in my life. 

The last thing is something that hasn’t been 100% confirmed so I can’t really say anything but if it does pan out, you’ll know at the beginning of next month. 

So yes, thank you for being patient with me and thank you for being so lovely and supportive of my films and endeavours. It means a great deal.

- Bertie
