Pogonophilia - About The Film
This is another film where the idea came to me relatively quickly. It was inspired by the fact that I had to shave off this pretty significant beard for work. Sometimes, we sort of get attached to our facial hair, and don't quite like the idea of getting rid of it. I wanted to push that idea to a ridiculous place, but still somewhat keep it anchored in reality.
This short comedy was shot with a minimal crew of two; my friend and I took turns recording each other on my camcorder.
The title came after the film was shot, as I searched online to see if a word encompassing the love of facial hair existed (and lucky for me it did) while the tagline is inspired by lyrics from the Brian Adams song "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?".
