1. This film was made as part of the 2013 Chicago 48 Hour Film Project (48hourfilm.com/chicago). On Friday, August 9th, 2013 at 7:00PM, we received a Genre (mistaken identity), a Character (Michael Madigan, chemist), a Prop (remote control) and a line of dialogue ("Why didn't I think of that?"). By Sunday, August 11th, 2013 at 7:30PM, we had to write, shoot, edit, score and deliver a 4-7 minute film containing all of these elements. This is what we turned in.

    A ginormous thank you to everyone who gave up their weekend to help out on this project. I hope it was as fun for them as it was for me.

    Enjoy!

  2. This film was made as part of the Chicago 48 Hour Film Project (48hourfilm.com). On Friday, July 27th, 2012 at 7:00PM, we received a Genre (silent film), a Character (Charles Greenwich, trainer), a Prop (stapler) and a line of dialogue ("That's one way of doing it"). By Sunday, July 29th, 2012 at 7:30PM, we had to write, shoot, edit, score and deliver a 4-7 minute film containing all of these elements. This is what we turned in.

    I would just like to thank everyone involved so much for donating their talent, time and enthusiasm to this project. It was one of the most fun weekends I've had in a long, long time. I can't wait to do something like this again.

    Enjoy!

  3. This film was written, shot and edited between 8/12/11 and 8/15/11 as an entry in the 72-hour Film Race, Windie City Shootout 2011.

    This version is the one that was submitted to the festival. Sadly, due to some audio syncing complexities we ran into, this film is about 30 seconds too long for competition and was delivered about an hour late.

    I plan on creating a more finished version over the next week or two. So, do be on the lookout for that.

    That said, entering this festival was a blast. The people listed in the credits were a joy to work with... you should hire them to be in your next film or theater production!

    Thanks for watching!
