A dead project.

Together with a friend a few weeks ago, we decided to join a short film competition, which lasted over the last weekend till Tuesday. It was a 4 days video challenge.

Long story short, we failed.

I could blame the hush weather condition and tight time constrains, I could blame the casting issues we had and the budget we do not have, but who am I kidding, these are just excuses I tell myself to make me feel better.

If there is one thing I could take away from this completion, it would be to do a rock solid planning before the day of shoot/production. Not everything will go the way I would like it to be, but when it goes wrong, at least I’d be prepared to make impromptu decisions that would - by then have prepared for.

2nd short film completion that I’ve enter and did not do a good job. Come on, bring on the 3rd one!

Anyway for the shoot, we were pretty much ready. We’ve got everything, including black umbrellas, white chrysanthemum, black suit and “champagne”. We are all set for a funeral scene we did not shoot.
