And now we have Closure…

You can check out our latest short film Closure here:

Apparently Closure didn’t resonate with the judges at the 100 Hour Film Festival this year.

To be honest, while it is something that is not part of our regular film style I think overall the group was pretty pleased with the end result. Admittedly it’s a dark and moody little thing but we will send it out to a few film festivals and see if there is an audience for the film.

Closure – 100 Hour Film Race 2016

We survived again.

The assignment this time was:

Theme: ESP

Prop: A doll

Action – Shaking Hands.

A quartet of regulars: Neil Bennett, Eric Myles, Rob Paul and Patrick Williamson.  A fifth player, musician Chris Pauley worked offsite composing pieces based on the script and then tailored to the rough and final cut of the film.

Eric and Rob wrote the script, something a little off the beaten path for the regular “comedies” 416film makes. Pat and Neil filled out the two acting roles while Rob and Eric worked behind the scenes.

The weather, although bleak and mildly snowy actually provided a great somber look to the film.

A little less hectic and rushed than some of our previous films we still were tweaking up towards the midnight deadline and uploaded in the last hour of the contest.

Wish us luck!

 

The Definition of Insanity

That’s right…despite saying several times, “This one is the last one we are doing!”, we have decided to tackle the 100 Hour Film Project again.

We are putting together our team. We have a couple of regulars like Pat Williamson and Neil Bennett hooking their star to our little red wagon, but in theory we may have a few newcomers to the group as well to help either shoulder some of the burden or dive into the abyss with us.
