OK, so a little background. Chip and I decided to enter a 24 hour film festival over the past weekend. We also invited local comedian Kent Haines to be a part of the program. Here was the deal: they sent you a topic and a prop at 10 p.m. on Friday night, and you had to turn in a three and a half minute movie on Saturday night at 10 p.m. We got the email at 10 p.m. The topic was bullies and the prop was a rose. We were going to do like a Karate Kid type film except with robots, but then decided against it. Then, we decided to do a documentary, but after shooting for most of the morning, had nothing good. So then we just decided to make a short film about a bully and a nerd. It turned out pretty awful, as you can see here.
So at 7:15 p.m., with less than three hours remaining in the contest, we decided to start from scratch. We did a one shot film, but although that one was better, we thought it might offend some people. So after working for 24 hours we decided not to enter at all. Despondent after our latest failure and $85 poorer, Chip and I did what anyone would have done under the circumstances: we got a late night dinner at Johnny Rockets.
