293.82 is the diagnostic code for psychiatric disorders with hallucinations. I shot this with my Sony EX1 in 1080p24 High Quality mode. All shots are chroma keyed. Backgrounds are photographic plates added with After Effects. The color reversal, vignetting and strobing is Magic Bullet. Exported at 720p24 HQ. Psychotic woman played by my sister. Creepy music is royalty free buyout stuff. Not much of a plot here, just an exercise.
An overconfident young pool hustler gets in over his head gambling with a gangster and learns who his true friend is in this short film. Produced for a graduate film directing course at DePaul University by Michael Knapp, Paul Principe, and Megan Etlinger.
