COMPASSION, the short film anthology written and directed by Jeff Corpening from Corpening Media, completed principal photography on the final of the three parts in mid-August 2019. Pre-production had begun over a year prior in February 2018, when I began to guide production on the first installment, which starred Victor Hough with cinematography by David Craig in a setting that challenged a land developer to look past the present. Betsy Cardwell was another Producer on the project, and the glue that kept consistency and continuity in all three parts.
Part III underwent production in November 2018, and starred Emily McDaniel and Camila Escobar in which a WWII stageplay strangely turns into reality. Part II was filmed last, and featured Lavin Cuddihee and Melanie Stauss in an fairy tale trial which looked to establish empathy between man and beast. Both parts II and III were helmed by cinematographer Brad Hoover, head instructor at the Asheville School of Film. Check out the teaser trailer for Parts I and III below!
