Woodruff Laputka wanted to be a filmmaker since he was six years old. Motion pictures moved him in a way that made all his fantasies possible. It made untold stories audible. Distant feelings and far away lands became local and available to experience. He spent days in the humid heat of his Florida back yard building sets and writing scripts to shoot with his parent's JVC VHS camera. He attended the University of Alaska Anchorage for Journalism and the University of Stirling Scotland for Documentary Production & Theory. He's been working as a freelance documentary producer for the past seven years.
When did you make this film?
What was this for? Was it a personal project? A job?
Personal project, part of a series of short micro-doc pieces I've been doing since 2012, called " Picture Book."
Can you tell us the story behind the film?
Picture Book III, the third installment of my Picture Book series, is an exploration through the world of imagery and true-life characters in a super short, at times even abstract, form. Whether the darkest corners of loneliness, or the warmest nooks of childhood, Picture Book is an expression of the past, where we can move through our memories as we might remember them: the sounds, textures, images and ultimately, the feelings that never truly leave us.
What camera did you shoot with?
Canon EOS 5D Mk III
