"Fairfield" short


A few months back, a friend of mine, Steve Meyer and I decided to join creative forces and make a short film. We're making "Fairfield", a black and white futuristic film noir short about a hit man. Mitch Larson has written a kick ass script and we're now in the early stages of pre-production. I've started a blog that will follow our LOOOONG path to the final film. Check it out!

We'll be posting updates throughout the project, so stop on in from time to time!

One of my all time favorite movies is the "future noir" film Blade Runner. The sets were misleading as most of everything in pertained to lightness. You know, rain, blimps, levitating cars, multi-colored lights, etc. Are your backgrounds going to be along these lines? Having seen what appears to be an oil refinery photo gave me that impression. The character/s are taking good shape by the way.

Thanks John. Yeah, we're going for that urban decay/oil refinery look for the backgrounds and also for the vehicles. Everything is going to big, dirty and bulky. Less on the lighter side.

Kelsey - check out the "current" paintings on my website and let me know if this is in the same genre. Just interested if we are in the same ball park is all.

Hey those look great. What we're going to be doing is a bit more graphic and stylized. I'll post up some bg stuff as soon as the bg guys have something to show. Maybe in a week or so. Great cubism studies though!

Hey man. Great job last night. Lookin' forward to getting together Thur. Just want to make sure, I would like to get together Thur. at lunch because I'll be at Disney in the evening. I hope that's okay.

You're a talented man, my friend. Loved seeing the varitey of holes you could fill in the studio enviornment. Great board and sell too.

Yesterday in the morning I did a digital sketch with "the project" in mind. Let me know what you think. It was a very quick study, so just an impression.

Hi Kelsey, I found your blog through the link on John Nevarez's site. I love your stuff! I think you've really picked out the "film noir" art style quite well! Can't wait to see more on the film as it progresses along!

Hey Kelsey, by chance did you ever attend Northern Michigan University? Just wondering. I had some art classes with a guy named Kelsey Mann and you somewhat look like him. Saw your name on an episode of Foster's, figured I'd Google you. Sorry to bother you if you're a different Kelsey Mann....man.
