Daniel Martin and Zach Lewis present a silent short, starring Gavin White and John Melde.
Produced for an undergrad course in the University of North Texas' Radio-TV-Film department. (RTVF 2210) Edited with Adobe Premiere Pro. All music used courtesy of its respective artists.
We filmed this short in the Syndicate on campus on the last Sunday of Spring Break in 2012. We didn't schedule the place for filming or anything; it just happened to be empty. It took us 7 hours to initially film everything, and another 8 to edit the short together with music and title cards. The initial script called for 6 actors, including the shark, boss, two bodyguards, and two girls in cocktail dresses... also, possibly a bartender. We had planned for a drawn out fight scene and a little bit of romance, but when it came down to it we were short on actors. It's probably for the best that we didn't have any extras, though. All those extra scenes would've taken shooting to 2 or even 3 days and editing would've been a nightmare- in the end we realized it was probably for the best that those scenes were cut.
I cannot thank Daniel enough for everything he did on this project... which was pretty much everything. He wrote, directed, and edited the whole project- I just kind of stuck around for the ride. A toast to Daniel for all the hard work; I look forward to working with you again in the future.
