Gigantic Post recently worked with Cutter Hodierne, providing Audio and Video Post Production services for “Fishing Without Nets”, a film about Somali Pirates taken from the Somali point of view. This beautifully shot 15-min action packed short is in the Somali language with subtitles. The spoken dialect of the Pirates combined with shooting the film on location in Kenya gives “Fishing Without Nets” a hyper-realistic feel and the viewer begins to question if the film is a documentary.
But it is not. It is a great story of the tough choices these young Somali men must face that lead them to plunder the seas around them. By the end of the film, you are left wanting more and hopefully a full length feature film will supply that.
“Fishing Without Nets” went to Sundance film festival and came away with top honors winning the “Jury Prize in Shortfilmmaking”. Needless to say we are thrilled and look forward to continuing our relationship with Mr. Cutter!
