If you are a regular follower of this blog, you must have noticed that the frequency of posts have gone down here. Apologies for that. The reason is most of us have got bit busy with our scripts and films. Anyway, we are starting a new section – Sunday Shorts. The idea is to feature some of the acclaimed shorts. They serve as great cv for feature filmmakers. And it’s a great way to look back at the early work done by directors who are now established.
We are starting with Gareth Edwards‘ Factory Farmed. It was an entry at Sci-Fi-London’s 48 Hr Film Challenge, and it went on to win the top award. The film had to be written, shot and edited in 48 hours, had to use a given prop (bottle with red/green liquid) and a line – I am required to carry out this task until completion: your orders do not override anything. 48Hr Film Challenge gives you these 3 conditions.
Edwards went to direct the indie hit Monster, and is now known as the director of new Godzilla.
