will be. A simple job such as picking numbers turns into an emotional rollercoaster ride that sees Jack facing his childhood issues. Ultimately a story about a boy growing up, Three strikes is a tale that most of us can relate to and all of us can understand.
Trivia: 'Three Strikes’
was a special film to me for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was my first
short film with numerous locations and actors so that was a challenge.
Secondly, the shoot was a nightmare as we had sound issues and camera issues,
which then leads to…Editing! Which was a nightmare. It took me around a year to
edit and was my biggest learning curve in editing, ever. But do i regret the
film, not one bit. I learnt so much on this film and while it’s by no means
perfect it has a heart and a story which people can understand and relate to so
above the technical stuff. I think that’s what held it together. I’ll always
remember ‘Three Strikes’ as my film school and what a great journey it was! Film Accomplishments : FLICK PICK of the WEEK 5 on My Film Works, 28 January 2019.
