Behold, a new short film that I was honored to be a part of this summer. My friend Dave asked me to be a part of his team for the Pittsburgh 48 Hour Film Project, a traveling organization that hits several cities around the country to hold contests for local filmmakers. Every participating team needed to include a character named Alan or Alana Beaumont, the line “That’s never happened before,” and a present (or gift) as some sort of prominent prop. The final catch was that each team had to draw a genre from a hat, then stick to that genre when making their film. My team ended up with “surprise ending”, which of course is more of a plot device than a genre, but it was open-ended enough to allow us room to explore.
Enjoy, and let me know what you thought. As someone more experienced in comedy, it was a fun and educational time.
