Welcome to Short Film Weekends, where we create and make Short Films uniting storytellers from all over Los Angeles to meet and create something.
This was our second weekend shoot, and as the weeks progress - the format of the group will get better and better. We had 52 shots to get in 5 hours which was to say the least a challenge, and we didn't quite get all of them but moving forward, we'll be working to a different format. Please do support our endeavors as we continue to finesse the craft of filmaking in totally unrealistic turnarounds!! Gotta keep that movie making muscle FLEXED at all times, and in Short Film Weekends - we endeavor to create no matter what :)
