Shot in 2010 for the VIMEO - Beyond the Still Contest. vimeo.com/groups/beyondthestill
In a nutshell, Beyond the Still was the first ever and largest user-generated HD video contest in history, where photographers became filmmakers and we all saw beyond the still. Month after month, aspiring filmmakers were invited to pick up where the previous winning short film ended – on an evocative photograph. Contestants then reinterpreted that still, telling the story that lived beyond it in a short film of their own. Then, after the final chapter was created by Vincent Laforet and all the chapter winners, the collective film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
This is my interpretation of Chapter 2.
Synopsis: What do you get when you cross three wannabe luchadores, a one eyed security guard, a pregnant lady, and a bag full of blue money? A groovy good time or death and destruction...you be the judge :)
