Procrastination was an accidental film. A friend of ours organised a local short film competition, and we agreed to help support them by submitting a film. We thought it would be a great holiday project with our kids. Time got away, and before I knew it, the deadline was a week away and our kids were distracted with other holiday activities.
I had been teaching myself shaping by making handplanes from broken surfboards, and had been experimenting with a GoPro camera for 12 months or so. As I already had footage and the deadline was a week away, we didn't have much choice! Procrastination was born! It was quite a thrill to have it projected on the big screen to 500 people, and then pick up a cinematography award. It could easily become addictive!
