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.
416Film participated in the Toronto 48 Hour Film Contest yet again. Last year we had some very surprising success with our film The Pain Inside Diaz.
Sadly, for us at least, that after the initial screening we didn’t go onto bigger and better things…but despite that setback Eric created a more polished version this 48hour film and you can see it here!
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.
