This was done as a group project in the fall of 2010 in my Film Production 1 class at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX.
I shot this on an unknown brand 8mm camera at the John Gray Library on campus at Lamar. Surprisingly we didn't get kicked out. One scene was shot in the old Communications building and we managed to get Jimmy trapped in the elevator because of the power cords from our lighting equipment. Surprisingly again, we didn't get in trouble. The film came out fairly well I think since it was our first foray into the world of Super 8. I did all of the cinematography and Jimmy helped out on one shot, I believe. We had to do a zoom/focus thing that required more than one person to do. Cullen also filmed the shot of the group in the beginning.
Let me know what you think. Thanks.
