1. For Biddenfew

    Golden Age Films

    title: For Biddenfew genre: Screwball Comedy

    Careful with that hammer, old man Biddenfew!
    Oh no!
    the local knobs and knockers maker has a quest...
    Are you puppet enough?
    'BONK. BONK. BONK-BONK. BONK."

    Winner of Hastings 5 day film challenge 2008.
    This live action puppet epic, the first Golden Age film, was made on hi-8 and shot in sequence.
    The crew of two also held a baby (no, really!) whilst shooting, doing the noises and animating with hi-tech twigs. Look out for the fox with the ice-cream van!

  5. Metal Head
    Hastings 5 Day Film Challenge Winner 2007
    http://www.hastingsfilmchallenge.com
    Tile: Metal Head Genre: Musical

    Picking the title and genre from a hat at random we had 5 days to make a three minute short. Its rough around the edges but it went down well and gave all involved a chance to experiment and have fun.

    Made with the cheapest equipment available we used a PD150 battlecam (with a filthy lens), a basic digi camera for the animated stills, FCP, After Effects and some really cheap body paint (sorry Colin).

    Many thanks to all involved.
