A few months back in my Intro to Multimedia class we were given the task of writing and shooting a short film in 3 hours. We were only allowed to use a tripod, DSLR’s, and any lenses the school had available to rent. The story had to introduce the characters, show their relationship and have a twist at the end. My group, made up of Jess, Nicole and Zak, sat down and brainstormed what we wanted to do for our film. Plenty of ideas were bounced around. This was the story line we ended up with. We enlisted Jess’s boyfriend Colden to help us out. We walked the streets of downtown Chicago and Filming bits and pieces whenever we’d find an interesting spot. We got back to the school with plenty of time to spare. We were given the week to edit together the video, but I edited the whole thing the next day because I was so excited to see the finished product. I’m super happy with how it turned out, especially because we did do it all in 3 hours. There are things that we look back on and think that we could have done them more cleanly, but overall I think we did a fantastic job!
