In October 416film participated in the 10th annual Toronto 48 Hour film contest and after doing so many of these we finally landed the dreaded “Musical” genre.
Did we allow that to stop us? No!
Did we think about allowing it to stop us?
A little bit.
But with our motley crew of regulars including Patrick Williamson, Neil Bennett, Pamela Tophen and Paul French we added some completely new blood to the mix with Michael Obadia, Lisa Kennedy and Ibrahim Mohamed who all went above and beyond for this outing.
The film screened on Nov. 16 at the Revue theatre and played so much better than we could have expected.
So thanks to all who came out and thanks to those who worked so hard on this weird little film.
Our 24 hour film Time Juice screened at the 5th Annual Cobb International Film Festival (formerly the Marietta International Film Festival) on August 4. We came away empty handed but – something, something, honored to be nominated etc, etc.
Anyway, here is a link to the film if you have a few minutes to kill with some silliness…
Now considering the events surrounding this film it’s amazing we picked up any awards and we are pretty chuffed about it. Originally we back out of the contest, then stayed in.
At the scripting stage one of the writers said this may be the stupidest thing 416film has ever written (it was Rob, who still thinks he might be right).
Then during the editing of the film, for the first time, thought we were not going to make the deadline. We dropped a couple of effects shots and skipped the colour correction and made it in on time.
And now, after 2 live screenings with almost capacity crowds who seemed to enjoy most of the antics in this short we also landed “Best Use of Prop” and “Best Choreography”. We are not exactly sure about the choreography award but it might have something to do with the stairwell shot.
Either way, The Pain Inside Diaz is now live and you can save yourself the price of admission and watch it above.
