Departure was our entry into SATO48, a 48 hour movie festival, back in 2009. Our team came together for two more years, before more or less disbanding.
SATO48 is a competition where you have 48 hours to shoot and edit a short film that must also adhere to a given set of rules and a particular prop all given to you at the beginning of the 48 hours
For this particular year, there was a prop of an inflated toy flower that had to be shown deflated, blown up, and torn apart. There was also a Poem that your film needed to be inspired by as well as a required live action shot of someone reading a line of the poem.
