Editing is is progress

48 hours later…wait, it still hasn’t been 48 hours yet! Over the past two days, Team Fizbin has been scrambling to write, shoot, and edit our film. During the launch, we drew the genre of “Pirate” and the fortune “There is no mistake so great as always being right.” In addition, each team was required to include the following elements:

So, with that in mind, our team got underway.

Here is some of what we came up with:

Also, coming soon: Pictures from on set. Back to editing!

48 hours of creative madness has arrived!

It is here! The much-anticipated 48 hour film competition has arrived. We must write, shoot, and edit a short film in less than two days. Crazy, right?

Doorway Films and our team members have dubbed ourselves Team Fizbin, after the eloquent and dizzying game played by Capt. Kirk on Sigma Iotia II. Keep tabs of our Twitter, as we will be posting real-time updates as to our progress, as time allows, throughout the competition. At about 6 PM tonight, we will receive our assigned genre, line of dialogue, prop, character, and fortune cookie.

Fortune cookie, you ask? Well, this competition is called the Fortune Cookie 48, due to the fact that the last element of each film is based on the fortune from a real fortune cookie, and teams will be graded on how well they creatively interpret and incoprorate their respective “fortunes” into their films. Each film must be 5-7 minutes in length, as filled with shimmering awesomeness throughout. Wish us luck–we will need it!

48 hours of…

Doorway Films is about to embark on an exciting adventure within the world of film: we are gonna do a 48 hour film festival! Starting this Friday, February 10th, yours truly along with a team of high skilled–well, maybe highly motivated individuals will pour our brains, sweat, blood, and hopefully no real tears, into a short film to be proud of.

Your just gonna hafta wait.

But not too long.

Silent Transitions

Today’s video comes to you from another continent. Amazing as that is, this video is even better. Everything that this artist makes is quite stylized, and it genuinely works. The cinematography is excellent, and the voice acting really helps to heighten the mood of the overall film The Biblical allusions written into the piece make it gripping, emotionally charged, and electrifying. It will make your head swim in the clouds and even think…in slow motion!

Videos that make you think are valued differently by each individual, some beyond words.

Love Tap

Today’s video is a special short film from Walt Disney Pictures Short Films division. This is an excellent take on the concept of love, destiny, and fairytale endings, something which Disney has held the market on for decades. Also, this short film is aesthetically excellent; the whole story is told succinctly and visually with little dialogue. The story flows and is visually appealing, in a compact sort of way. Its rather like a fortune cookie: sweet, crunchy, with something special at its heart.
