One Minute

film | November 2017

The folks over at Film Riot put together a great contest called the Film Riot One Minute Short Film Contest. As the name suggests, the idea was to put together a film no longer than one minute. The film could be any genre, as long as it was scripted. No documentaries.

Having never created a scripted film before, I was totally in. I recruited my beautiful wife as the main character and wrote a story about someone obsessed with time travel. We shot and edited the film within a single week, leaning heavily on shooting after the kids went to bed.

We learned a ton and had a lot of fun in the process!
