That's me painting a face for the short film

Friday at 6:00PM you receive an email notification with instructions on what criteria you need to incorporate. You have a rag tag group of likeminded individuals ready to get down to business. The clock starts, time is already running out…

You agree on a concept and you hope it’s what everyone was thinking of. The writers are off to make a script that is both entertaining and captures the genre that is required. Everyone else is getting equipment ready to shoot and are heading to location if they’re needed.

Time keeps ticking by minute by minute... It’s 1:25AM before you get home, you have to be back at a different location by 5:00AM to set up before the light changes. The only thing keeping you awake after only 3.5hrs of sleep is the humans beside you because they are just as crazy as you are.

It’s time for post to take the rains and bring the vision of the short film to life. They have less then 24 hours left to cut, edit, colour/sound correct. Your finished product is rendering now, this is the time you can think of all the things you could have done had you only had a few more hours…

You are now the proud co-parent of this beautiful imperfect short film. You have made new connections with people you might not have ever met.

I bet while exhausting it is invigorating at the same time
