This was shot on a very very cold night in Austin in front of my house. It snowed the next day. Post image stabilization was needed on some shots to steady the camera from my shivering. Shorts were probably a bad idea.

This is my primary piece for my graduate film school application portfolio for the Broadcast Cinema masters program at Art Center. With the help of many amazing people, we turned this around from concept to completion in 10 days. This was all shot within 20 minutes from the UT campus in Austin, TX.
Extra thanks to my roommate (Myles Siegel) and my little sister (Jen) for their time and wonderful acting debut. Thanks also goes out to newly-admitted USC Starkie, Adam Sorin for help with the story and Ben & Andrew Adams for generously providing their vital equipment and expertise.
