how many eggs?

Here's one of my submissions for last week's 1 Minute Movie. There was only a little cheating.

The rules:

  • exactly one minute long
  • no camera movement
  • no edits
  • no music or credits

Yet another example of the inordinate amount of time required to create images, especially of the moving variety. Not that I'm complaining, or that anyone really cares. But for the record, it was probably an hour and a half set up for one minute of screen time, although there were four takes, four eggs. I was told after that I would need to go buy some more if I was planning on continuing with more versions.

Too bad I haven't learned how to crack an egg yet.










Adrenaline Film Project 2011

For those who don't know about the Adrenaline Project at the Virginia Film Festival, watch this short. We documented this year's entrants and got our film into the running.

A lot of coffee - a lot of lost sleep.

An impressive effort from Brian Wimer, who edited this film, shot material about several of the participating groups, and wrote the script for the audience award winning Attack of the Trailer. I followed three teams during their shooting, and spent some time in the Digital Media Lab in Clemons Library at the University of Virginia where all the teams gathered Friday night/Saturday morning, til 5pm Saturday, for their editing.
