A group of Evangel University filmmakers (Dogs of NY) asked me to help them produce a film for SATO48, a film contest held in Springfield, MO in 2011. I was the cinematographer on this film. We shot more footage than could be edited into a five minute film, so I re-edited the film after the fact, and that is the version shown here. My apologies to Billy Talty who composed the music - I had to adjust the music around dialogue as I no longer had access to the original soundtrack. Some additional footage and dialogue is shown here that were not in the original SATO version. Thanks to Zachary Kidder, producer, for asking me to be a part of this project. If we had more time, we would have created an opening scene that helped explain how this story began. Instead, I added a police report using text to help the viewer get context for this story. I shot this using a Canon T2i DSLR using my own lighting setup. I color corrected the footage using Magic Bullet and Adobe Premiere Pro. Oh, you might need to know that the SATO48 rules required us to use two octopuses as props as well as six of something - we chose needles. The original edit had to be 5 minutes or less.
