We directed this short film back in 2008 and finished editing it in 2010. It was written by a friend of ours, Richard Johnson, and is all about what would happen if a great discovery lands in the lap of somebody who doesn’t know what to do with it. Starring another good friend of ours, the comedian, writer and actor Neil Edmond, and co-starring Rosemary Smith.
It picked up third place in The Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival 2011 (part of The Seattle International Film Festival), and the EMP Museum in Seattle are now screening the film daily on the largest indoor LED screen in America… which is kind of amazing.
We shot it in our garage with the help of many people including:
- Colin Butler bought all his camera gear and was our director of photography
- Paul Parsons was an extremely patient sound man (it seems a summer weekend is a popular time to get the lawnmower out)
- Nathan McLaughlin spend an incredible amount of time and talent on the make-up for the end scene
- Andrew Barnabas made it all sound great with his sound mixing
- The Boob was our voice of reason during the editing
