That’s A Wrap

My video tech class finished a month-long mini-movie project.  I was skeptical at first, but we not only had a lot of fun filming our low-budget (under $50) flick, but we also learned a lot about the movie biz.  We scripted the movie, assigned the roles – both acting and production, scouted locations, secured locations, collected and built props, planned stunts and effects, created a shooting calendar and then finally shot.  The first edit is almost finished and we are collecting copyleft music to use.  The idea was a 15-20 min. movie, but I think it will be closer to 30 min.

But Monday we had a wrap party.  Lots of fun.  But they deserved it for more than 15 days on task without losing time during the pre-production and filming.  These kids rock!  We hope to have the movie on DVD with outtakes and bloopers in about 2 weeks.
