The Film Challenge requires competitors to write, produce, film and edit a short film within the 48 hour time restriction using a given genre, character, prop and dialogue line. Thousands of people submit their short films from around the country each year. Our given genre was dark comedy, the character was a park ranger, the prop was a telephone land line and tagline is "it was like that when I got here". It was all written, cast, produced, shot and edited (complete with special effects) in one weekend. Many of the scenes were done in just a couple takes.
What you don't see in our film is the incredible amount of planning, effort attention to detail and people involved in making something like this- even if it is only under 8 mins long. Major credit is due to everyone who nailed their parts n front of and behind the camera on this project. I feel so hopeful for our film and I hope it does well in the competition!
