Had the very great pleasure of spending a bonkers Saturday involved in the shooting of this short film with director Simon Cox of AlphaStar Productions. If you don’t know, the brief for this annual competition is to produce a short science fiction film within the space of 48 hours. On or after 11.00am Saturday, all entrants are given the title of their film, a line of dialogue and a specific prop that must appear in the finished article. The film must then be submitted by 12.00pm on the Monday. The given title was “A Swift Change”, the line of dialogue was “We’ve fitted one in his skull, records everything and transmits it to here, coded to my card”, and the prop was a photo frame that had to have the photo replaced by one of the characters. Simon had prepped and scripted the story beforehand – luckily, it was easy to incorporate the prescribed instructions. The result is below:
