When disaster strikes the city, who can save us?
Created the weekend of November 22-24 for the 2013 San Antonio 48 Hour Film Experience. This version is slightly different than the version that screened Thursday Dec 5th. It's a little shorter, some filters applied in the right places, some audio cleaned up, and some graphics made more fun. But generally, the same.
This is the first time in awhile that I've had to be director, cinematographer and editor, as well as co-producer. I probably could've and should've passed on a role or two. The camera work is less than I'd like it to be. But for the most part, I think it works, and I defy you to get that theme song out of your head.
The better puppets were from the collection of (and manipulated by) Jerrod Kingery. We made the rest of them, and we sort of thought just flapping the mouth was all it took. But when Jerrod got there, he made us all look like chumps. He's a fantastic puppet-actor. Among the voices -- Brant Bumpers, Tamedra "T.J." Jones, Valerie Tapia... hell, all of us did a little something. The fleshy actors were Leslie Augustine, Cooper Barnstrom and Soren Vaughn. David Stinemetze recorded the sound, Don Espiritu came up with the script, Jeff DeCuir of Hyperbubble created some amazing music (he brought a theremin!). Becky Stinemetze produced, along with Paul Vaughn (who also provided our studio space) and me.
