I'm going to do it!
 
Life is for the living.
I am going to make a great short film!

The script is 3 pages, and it will take me about a year and a half to shoot.
It's a super hero action comedy

I've also got a separate, one-day crime-thriller set to film on march 9th.

Sweet! I can't wait to see them.

Any tips on the sfx? I have the heroine throwing a couch and crushing a group of people. I'm thinking best bet is to make it out of wireframe.

I would find a BIG block of packing foam, or multiple pieces glued and carved into a couch shape with fabric stitched appropriately...Just keep in mind that due to its lightness, it may take a bit of tweaking, perhaps some led weights or something in the corners to get it flying through the air correctly at the right speed.

It will be more durable then wire framing and far easier to shape into a convincing couch.


best of luck :)

Do you mind me asking why it will take so long for a 3 page script?

Why not talk to MikeB.

He's in New Jersey - not too far from Maryland. He may have some helpful suggestions if he's not able to give actual assistance.

Because I am going to show people something they've never seen before.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. Sfoster's great short super hero action comedy film. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain...

^ great quote.

I'm not sure it will translate to a feature, but it's very ambitious and hopefully it doesn't fail.
I know this is an unusual thing to put so much effort into such a short film.

I think it's foolish not to. I mean really, nobody should want to half ass something if they have the ability to give more effort.

If it takes you a year, it takes a year, if it takes 5 years, whatever.. Although after 5 years it damn well better be phenomenal.. lol

sfoster 02-26-2014 01:22 AM

I think a year and a half is reasonable. If I go off track I could see it taking longer.. but hopefully I can stick with it.

I'm going to create something magical
