Have you ever tried to make a short film based on an idea you only conceived hours before and then having to fully shoot/edit it for presentation within 48 hours?? it's a hell of a trip!
So back in 2014 I got together with a bunch of filmmakers for the first 48 hour film project to come to Aberdeen City. Each team got a Genre assigned with one catch.....we needed to have a sandwich in it......I still have no idea why?
See the full short here.......
Our category was "Fish out of water" and also lucky for me I was only needed to "act" in the short film (you call that acting buddy?) which I was flattered to be a part of.
Plus I got to ad lib and basically do stuff off the cuff which was great fun, just like being a kid again.
My biggest contribution to the short was the ending actually, I wanted to throw the table stand over in a fit of anger and sorrow but one of the crew said it had to be returned un-harmed.
As we came closer to the last shot I basically thought "sod it" and grabbed the table cloth to rip it off dramatically but because it had been sellotaped down the entire table tipped up!
Awesome result as bits of sandwich flew everywhere and we didn't even pick it up. I was about to but someone said "leave it for the dogs" which there were plenty of in Aberdeen Park........of the canine variety I mean.
Full credit has to go to everyone else involved, I was merely a day player!
