The first ever short film created by the students of 826chi.org for the October-November 2009 workshop "Action Jackson"
Throughout the workshop, students learned about screenwriting, scripting, special effects, sound, makeup, set design, costumes, location, cinematography and lighting. Each student assumed a specific role, largely deciding amongst themselves who would be in charge of what. Input from every single student made it into the final cut (so enjoy democracy at its finest!)
The first half of the workshop series dealt with familiarizing students with the various aspects of movie making while the second half was dedicated to filming and editing. A final session was held to screen the film for the students' families where copies of the short were given to each student.
