made a short film

On Friday, April 5th, 2013 at 7: 00  pm sharp, myself and a few others stepped into the famed Calgary video shop Casablanca.

We received a sealed envelope from a Count Dracula dressed character. He wished us good luck and then kept staring at us as we walked out.

Inside the envelope we were given our mission details.

We had to make a short film in 48 hours for the Calgary Underground Film Festival.  We had to use a spider prop in the film, we had to use the line ” You’re doomed, You’re all doomed!”  And it had to be in the Found Footage genre in the vein of say Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield.

So given the monstrosity of this project we decided to have copious amounts of drinks that night. You know? To brain storm.

We didn’t actually start filming until Saturday of that weekend at around 1 pm.

More like 20 hour film festival!

Anyways, it was fun times despite the chilly weather. We had a talented musician  make custom beats for us, Dangerous Dave did the video work. Rest of us pitched ideas as we went. It was our first time entering into a film fest!

Anyways enough writing.. grab a drink and enjoy:

    Independent motion picture providers are showing the fact that the main studios do not will be the only judges of the things consumers want. If you add to that distribution on the Internet and, headlines, internet sites, from rumor to entire movies. It’s actually a completely new world. A lot of it wonderful, some not.
