Process Wins Flavorpill/GRANTA Contest!

· Joanthan Poritsky

About a month ago I entered a short film into a contest hosted by culture/event blog Flavorpill and literary magazine GRANTA. The idea was to make a film that encapsulates the idea of life as a rehearsal. The film I submitted, Process, managed to win the contest. [They gave me a lovely writeup for the film]( winner-announced). Watch it here.

I made the film a few months ago from footage I took a few months before. While hanging out with my friend Nazy, I broke out my Nikon D90 and started filming her. She thought I was going to take a still photo any minute, not realizing at first that I was recording our conversation. From about 15 minutes of footage I snipped together this little piece. (Nazy consented to all this, so don’t be afraid to hang out with me while I have my camera)

The candler blog is specifically a site about film by filmmakers, so I thought you might like to see a bit of what I do when I’m not picking apart blockbusters or dolling out career advice. I would love to hear your thoughts on the piece in the comments, and will happily field any questions about it.
