A short film made last summer for my TV & Film Production class.
The only rules were:
-to be exactly 5 minutes long
-include steam and a reflection somewhere
-use the line "there's always another way...a better way"

I spent a few nights writing the script, a week in pre-production, one weekend of shooting, and a week of post-production. What a wonderful time it was making this. I got a hold of the file again and did some further edits to it, such as letterboxing and color correction, cutting out some things I didn't like, and adding some good ol' white noise. To see the original, go here: vimeo.com/24359970

Actually, there's an even more original original, the one I cut for myself- it's about 9 minutes long. I have it on DVD, but unfortunately, no file exists anymore (to my knowledge, at least). Maybe I'll rip my DVD and upload it one day. We'll see. Until then, enjoy this shorter edit!
