This clip was made as an entry into the Hoyts Hotshot Competition in 2008. The comp called for entrants to recreate a 30sec scene from a hollywood film.
This entry, a scene from the Stanley Kubrick film 'The Shining' won first place in the competition.
The result was a trip for Leah and myself to Los Angeles and a role in a hollywood film. We got to hang on the set of 'Wrong Turn at Tahoe' which starred Cuba Gooding Jr and Harvety Kietel. I was featured in a scene with Cuba but unfortunately the scene was cut from the final product.
This clip is far from what I would call serious film making. It's imitation. Flattery. It was a fun thing to do to enter a competition. But everything from the camera shots to the edit to the performances were (as closely as we could) copied. Right down to the huff and puff breaths Jack takes as he says "I'll huff, and Ill puff".
