Sooooo, my most recent creative project is a short film called Fight 4 Your Life, which was filmed at the end of last month (March) as part of the Sacramento 48 Hour Film Festival. I used this festival as a means to get a lot of people together for a short amount of time to accomplish a rather large feat. The big picture was always to extend the film well past the allotted 7 minute runtime restriction of the 48 hr festival, editing it into what the script truly called for. My team and I were able to shoot 11 scenes in less than a day and a half.
Now, obviously, it was to be expected that the film wouldn’t be perfect. When you’re shooting so much in such a short amount of time there is bound to be limitations and flaws. But, overall, we were extremely successful in accomplishing the task of finishing the shoots, which were at multiple locations. I created a tedious shooting schedule to allow for the most clear cut path as possible. It seems it worked and I am so very proud of my cast and crew for getting ‘er done.
I now have a plethora of footage to edit into what will be the final film, which looks to be anywhere from 20 to 25 minutes in length at this time. Of course, this is just an estimate as I’ll have to cut accordingly for the best possible film in the end. My crew, actors and I are planning to re-shoot one of the scenes within the next couple of months. This scene just lacked vigor, as well as shots in general. At the time of its production, we were really pushed for time and just were not able to get what we wanted.
We are also going to be shooting an additional scene that I wanted in the film, but knew we weren’t going to have time to include in the initial shoots. Add this re-shoot and new scene’s shoot to the massive amount of editing I have to do and my pot is full for this project. At this time it is scheduled to have the final version of F4YL done by the end of July 2012 or the end of summer 2012 at the latest. I will be organizing a large screening event for the premiere, which I may turn into a sort of small film festival. Good times.
Currently, I’m working on editing the teaser trailer for F4YL. As soon as it’s ready BE READY because I’ll be posting it everywhere.
