Child abuse is a worldwide issue. The media often reports about the abusers. However, it never tells about the victims. With my movie “Trust Me” I want to give the victim a voice and a face and make viewers see situations through the eyes of them. I want people to understand that, abuse does not simply end with the punishment of the abuser - it affects victims throughout their whole life. Because even as we grow up our experiences will always be a part of us.
To shoot this movie I used a Sony a6500 camera, the VIDEOMIC PRO Plus, an Atomos Ninja Inferno monitor, the Ronin S, and an Osmo action camera.
Since I wanted viewers to experience certain scenes through the eyes of a child, I came up with the idea of fixing the Osmo action camera to a helmet and putting it on our child actor’s head. This enabled me to truly show the scenes from a child’s perspective.
I did the script writing, directing, filming, and producing all by myself. However, I had a wonderful team of friends who helped me out by producing the soundtrack, creating a choreography for the dance scenes, and lending a hand whenever I needed assistance.
