I figure I would one-up freedomsbeat and post my own independent film.

This short film was made about a year ago for a school assignment... all the setup that you need is that it is a satirical film of a modern day issue (very satirical). It's starring me and a bunch of friends (including a prominent AT staff member's younger brother)... all the filming and post was done by myself. It took about 6 hours to film broken up over 2 days, plus about half a week in editing.

This version has been compressed down to 50.5 Megs, as opposed to the original 1.5 GB DVI format. Everybody needs to thank Minendo for the hosting as well.

Enjoy!

*And yes, I know I misspelled theives (should be thieves) in one of the slides, but it's a little late for that :p *

Edit: It's ~7 mins in length.

Edit: If for some reason you need the codec, get it here apple.com/quicktime (thanks M4H)

Feel free to comment on it too... even though it's a year old. The lot of us plan on making more (this isn't the first one)

That's pretty good work for a student film. There are a few issues / inconsistancies, but a good job none the less.

Ken is very lucky that Jon was in our graduating class. He was probably the best actor in our high school lol

I'll look like a prick for saying this, but WTF is this thread stickied?! I liked the movie but i see no good reason why this should be stickied, there are too many stickied threads as it is IMHO.

I did read the thread. It was indirectly posed as a question to Kristopher, but also to see if I was the only one who thought that.

Read the thread and you will get your answer. By the way, I agree with you.

Yeah, you're the only one. :D

If he ever gets in trouble, he can bribe the Mods with review goodies like P4EEs and M11-equipped notebooks.

Hey MacBaine,
Nice Job! I agree on the more blood thing, but your point was well-made.
So you filmed it, so we never got to see your face huh ?

Although I've been told I look different now, if you find any of the party pics posted on the boards in the last few months, you may be able to pick me out of one scene, although I did it against my will.
