A beginners adventure into film from an audience member to behind the camera

Caught this over at DVX user, a very nicely written horror project for a 48 hour festival. Im always amazed at how some people can really do a great job of writing, shooting and putting together pieces together so quickly. I dont think this level is the norm, so check this piece out.

    don’t mean to plug our page but I wanted to give credit to everyone involved without making this comment too long, so check us out and you can see some behind the scenes footage of the making of it.

    We shot the “The Night Class” with a D700 and a small soft box, all the outside footage was shot with car headlights and white bed sheets to diffuse the light from the car headlights, we didn’t have amazing equipment but we had a dedicated team and cast and we’re all very proud of the film.

    We barely made the deadline, the film was due at 7:30 on Sunday, it was 7:12 and my Mac was still rendering and at 38%, we all thought we failed and were about to call everyone and apologize to let them know we couldn’t make it; but miraculously at 7:15 the render que went from 40 to 100. We jumped into our beat-up little car and drove straight into the heart of DC with minutes to go, breaking every traffic law known to man, as we reached the final block to reach the delivery point I jumped out of the car and ran through the traffic filled streets and made it to the door, as they counted down the last five seconds before shutting us out. It was the happiest moment of my life, and it goes to show that no matter how bad things seem to be you should never give up there’s always hope.
