We decided to make a last minute entry into http://www.studio360.org/crowdsourcing/extra-credit-scary-short-film-fest/results/ which is the Scary Short Film Fest (presented by Wes Craven, famous for movies such as Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream) – after reading this and finding out that we had one afternoon to put it together, we decided to take up this challenge. While a lot of entrants looked at the haunting backdrop of music with an ambient edge of fear to it, and cryptic notes in blood, we decided to take the more comedic angle of horror (after all, Scream was more comedy if anything)!
Its got an element of humor, horror, stereotypes, references, odes and homages to, double entendres, you name it. And its black and white, 30 seconds and all done today from 5pm. Couple hours later, the audio was synced, the clips cut and the short film entered into the contest. And here it is….. “Math 101 – The 30 Second Tutorial“.
Not bad for a quick 30 second film. Though I do have an earful of chocolate syrup / blood. I guess that’s what you have to go through in order to make a short film in less than a day. On the next day, write a screenplay – here’s how to do that in a day!
