Written, shot and edited (including original musical score) in only a weekend as part of the 48hr Film Challenge, The Last Temptation of Jeff was a pretty accomplished film, all things considered!
We had prepared, with the help of http://www.saxonviolence.co.uk a van full of anglo-saxon costumes and weaponry, so whatever theme we were given, the film was always going to be a period piece!
All the dialogue was ad-libbed by the immensely talented Colin Cuthbert (Jeff) and the sadly missed Iain Etchells (Tarquin) and the score was written and performed at 3am by Dave the Happy Singer.
I don’t have the space to ooze about the level of talent on the set that weekend, but it’s all there to see - just about everyone made it into the film, even me!
Sadly, The Last Temptation of Jeff was unofficially disqualified because nobody believed we did it all in a weekend. I was both annoyed and frankly flattered by this, though many of the crew rightfully felt that we had been robbed.
