I guess Becca and Megan had been planning on doing this for awhile, but Becca was going to write it. After doing a scene from Henry Fool for directing class, Megan thought it would be fun to do more. So she called Becca and said "do you want to do the superhero monologue thing tonight?" and after about 15 seconds of deliberation we were on our way to Williamsburg to make it happen.
Becca got dressed in the meanwhile, in a costume you'll definitely enjoy if you watch this.
We were going to use part of the unfinished exercise room in her building, but after I insisted on doing a chase scene at some point in this we found a bunch of storage lockers in the basement. One was open so we put Megan in it and tied her to a chair. The rest you can watch.
This was really hard to edit because we had about 30 or 40 minutes to record the material and everything had to be improvised. The battery on the camera was near dead and I'm surprised we got as much as we did. Nonetheless, it worked out and it's cute.
Recorded entirely with a Canon 5D Mark II. Edited in Final Cut Pro. Hardly any color correction was done, aside from the second shot of the city (to make the contrast match the first).

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
