"Extraordinary Colleagues" tells two parallel tales - that of a comic book writer and her clueless editor, along with a glimpse into the larger-than-life "Sin City" style comic book they produce.
This was our entry for IFP/Phoenix's Summer 2010 48 Hour Film Challenge. The line of dialogue we had to include was "I am so hungry." The required prop was a paintbrush. And we had a choice of 2 genres - action or romantic comedy. So we did both.
And yes, everything you see here was done in 48 hours, including all the animation and After Effects work!
The film won 3 awards at the 48 Hour Challenge Screening (Best Director, Best Overall Technical Elements, and 2nd Place Film) and then took home another two awards at the IFP/Phoenix year-end awards (Best Director and Best Editing).
