Thanks to creativeLIVE and Vincent Laforet for creating this contest. I enjoyed every minute of it. This was a great opportunity to keep my editing skills honed, not only picture editing, but audio editing especially.
I like the idea of going with the black and white, I feel it helped capture the era they were essentially going for.
All the extra sfx was recorded by myself not including the phone ring. Luckily there were great audio takes of the phone being picked/hung up, as well as the speaker box click.
I hope you enjoy it and good luck to everyone involved. There are a lot of great entries. I think it will be tough for them to narrow them down to one winner.
