Jane Austen Project: Persuasion
Katherine created and produced every fiber of this project because she LOVES period films! She adapted two scenes from one of her favorite Jane Austen novels, Persuasion; she learned how to sew and then made an historically accurate dress; she hired a wonderful calligraphy artist for Wentworth's letter; she rented equipment from Film Independent and Samy's Camera; she called in favors for crew; she even learned Adobe Premier Pro so she could be the one to edit. She hopes you enjoy these short scenes as much as she did creating them.
The first scene occurs earliest in the story. Anne, the unmarried daughter of a wealthy English family, is alone in the forest when she overhears a conversation between the man she loves and his potential wife.
Considering Katherine filmed in Los Angeles for less than 500 bucks, she thinks she did a pretty good job of conveying the English countryside.
This second scene is Katherine's favorite of the two and it takes place near the end of Persuasion. In it, Anne reads a letter from the man she loves. Through penned words, he declares his affections and requites Anne's unrequited love. Katherine particularly enjoyed creating a romantic mood using period music, slow motion, and stylistic tricks she gleamed from watching too many BBC period shows.
