We recently brought you the trailer of Rosie's first film, We Are One about her trip to Mars. Now we have the whole film.
She is the lead character in the short film, 'We Are One' about a manned mission to Mars.
We spoke to the director, Andrew David Clark and were told the film is:
"A drama about some of the potential problems of a human expedition to Mars and the possible consequences. It is a mixture of fact and fiction.
Bizarrely, the story is actually based on credible science – having spoken to experts – as the 'one way trip' is a popular mission design currently on the table with mission planners."
On Rosie being picked for the film, he said: " She appealed to me because although she's incredibly glamorous she's also very natural. She has kind eyes. She has this 'girl next door' quality and has an intelligence about her which struck me when I met her on a magazine job.
She did very well at school and academically speaking she's pretty smart; don't be fooled by the good looks. So I simply asked her and she liked the story, being as it is, based on science, theory and issues applicable to a real Mars mission. It's fun but makes some educational points which appealed to her. I'm very interested in the positive advancement of society through science and exploration and she shares that interest, too, so she was really eager to be involved.
To be honest, she was amazing. We had to write, shoot and edit the whole thing in 48 hours for Sci-Fi London film festival, and of that we only had nine hours to shoot on the sets. Rosie had to wear a hot space suit under the heat of lights for three hours.
She had to fight fainting and she didn't complain once. She takes physical direction better than any actress I have worked with. Straight after the shoot at 2am she drove four hours home to the south east and was up at 7am to fly out to Spain on a modelling gig for The Sun. Now that's class.
We'll be taking a longer ten minute version of the film to Cannes and film festivals throughout the year which is more dialogue heavy and showcases her talent even more."
