WEBSITESTORY is an experimental feature film, filmed in 14 days with no traditional script. In fact, there were only two pages of the plot originally written and most of the dialogues were improvised on set.
In terms of Cinematography, it was a challenging project for the DP as it required a high grade of improvisation and also adaptability in both the lighting and camera department. Considered to be a low budget film (Euros 120.000) with many uncertainties on set as the story developed, it was a daring project to participate and contribute. Despite all encountered problems, we manage to finish the film, publish it on screen and also participate in several film festivals such as :
Mons International Festival of Love Films 2010 nominated for grand Prize, Montréal Festival of New Cinema 2010 nominated for Public Choice Award, the Romanian Union of Filmmakers wins Best Experimental Film
“…Like I said, what he didn’t do during training, Dan Chisu catch-up on set, guiding with steady hand the actors and the director of photography. Ovidiu Gyarmath is filming elaborated , stylish and convincing, composing careful geometry of the frame, playing expressively on the keyboard of lights and shadows – Here in mysterious chiaroscuro with violent contrasts, there beyond the pitiless clarity.” Mihnea Columbeanu
” ….What I really appreciate in the movie is the way it’s filmed. The camera surprises you at times and really grabs you.”
