Hindsight - 48 Hour Film

Hey all. So in playing post catch up, I wanted to post a video we did a while back for a 48 Hour Film Project. It was the Go Green version, so we had to do something environmental. Did we? Well, watch and find out. Here are the elements we had to include:

Theme: Saving the Future
Line of Dialogue: When does she arrive?
Prop: Camera
Character: Professor Johnson

So, I'm fairly certain we were disqualified. I don't want to brag but our film looked amazing on the big screen. We loaded it with cool cinematography, awesome music, sound design, and some pretty cool costumes. However, despite being stellar (and arguably the best in these areas) we were awarded nothing except Audience Choice Award Runner Up. But then again, I don't think our film is very environmental.

Still, it was a ton of fun to make. Nick Markham and I did all of the Post Production, with Whitney Ferris helping as a Producer. Our cast also included Kye Mou and a talented Steve Mnich, who nobody knew could act.

While Nick and I were editing, we'd realize we needed to shoot another scene here or another scene there. So we'd get back into costume, head to the location, set up a camera on me and him, and run through the scene. That's why sometimes really amazing cinematography is cut right next to a scene that has zero cuts and runs for a while.

Oh, and if you don't know who the guy at the end of the film is, check out this link: The Nellius Saga.
