Flirting with Strangers

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012




My 2nd short film was shot on a cheap camcorder. It ended up having a running time of almost 1 hour, and the colour and sound had suffered as a lack of proper equipment. Achieving the old film look was a fun challenge and seemed to fix these issues. Those who bravely stood before the camera included my friends, my boss, my brother, my mother, my girlfriend's daughter, and even yours truly.
