The Script Machine is LateNite Films entry for the 2011 Melbourne 48 Hour Film Project. We were fortunate enough to win Best Script, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Design, Best Editing and Best Overall Film. As a result, we travelled to New Mexico in 2012 to compete in the International Filmapalooza Competition.
The Script Machine is a film about a young writer that is drugged by a studio and forced to write traditional Hollywood narratives. The studio hooks writers up to a machine and they live out their scripts in an alternate reality. The only way to survive, break convention. Can Edgar and Scott break convention and get ‘unplugged’ from this horrific virtual reality? Only time will tell.
Everything was written, shot, edited and finished within the 48 Hour period - however, we did adjust the colour grade and end titles after the competition. Massive thank you to the incredibly talented Roslyn DiSisto at Method Studios for making the pictures look so great.
