This is the story of two lovers and friends that suddenly come apart - for reasons make that no sense... until they do.

Staring Nicole Trauffer and Will Madden

Written, Directed, Produced, and Edited by Paul Antico
Cinematography by Sean Meehan, Adam Kerchman, and Matt Stapleton.

Part of the July 1, 2012 "Under 3 Minute Film Challenge" sponsored by Anticipate Media and Macomber Productions. For this challenge three shooters, using a pen as a prop, had to produce a narrative script and shoot it in a few hours on location at The Willows Park in Salem, MA. In addition the phrase "This isn't going to be easy" also had to be used in the story. [Yes the short pre-credits is under 3 min!]

The other shorts from the Challenge:

Watch also "Anniversary Day" from Rick Macomber, part of the same 3 min challenge, with the same requirements and camera:

...and "you're not safe here" from Sean Meehan, the DP on this shoot as well:
