Here is a short I made for my Producing/Directing I class. It was the first project that I was fully in charge of (acting, writing, producing, choreography, editing, directing [although the credit went to my cinematographer, Aaron Ward]).
I used the opportunity to experiment with filmmaking methods such as dolly shots, ADR and other sound designs, along with choreographed fight scenes.
It's not without its flaws. I wish I could've made the script less melodramatic since it's from a concept that I wanted to use for a full length feature film, but when I condensed it down, it became forced.
I worked with a cool stunt team from ATA Martial Arts on this project and filming took one day. I hope you enjoy!
E.J. is just a simple man who loves movies. Don't judge.
