Our submission to the 2015 Charlotte 48 Hour Film Project was selected by the judges as BEST FILM, and we couldn’t be more pleased and honored! We will be representing Charlotte at Filmapalooza 2016 in Hollywood.
Genre: Fish Out of Water
- Prop: Garden Hose
- Dialog: “I have a funny feeling about this.”
- Character: Stephen (or Scarlet) O’Farrell, Architect
- The entire film was shot in the small town of Belmont, NC.
- The line “Business, business, business, business…” was a script change at the time we shot the scene. The script originally just called for muffled dialog.
- Stephen O’Farrell’s office is the real-life office of writer/actor Heather Head.
- Young Stephen O’Farrell was tired out by the time we shot the lunch scene (and it was hot). He agreed to do the shoot only if he could have the Caprisun and treat from the lunch bag afterwards.
