My First Short Film Shot On RED

Absurd and/or brilliant things can happen when you improvise.

So I bought a RED Scarlet.

I wanted to shoot some footage, specifically in low-light, to test out the new camera. I had an idea for a (very) short film and so I got a few people together and we started shooting, with no preparation or solid plans.

I had an idea of a mysterious package, but little else. We joked about possibilities and improvised crazy scenarios, and this was the result. Surprisingly, it came together quite well.

I’m still not sure if this is deadly serious and dramatic, or absurd and hilarious. Maybe it’s both. Either way, I’m proud of it.
