“Fresh Flowers” Premieres on Thursday November 29, 2018 at 7 pm CST (8pm EST).

short film is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences defines a short film as “an original motion picture that has a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits”. In the United States, short films were generally termed short subjects from the 1920s into the 1970s when confined to two 35mm reels or less, and featurettes for a film of three or four reels. “Short” was an abbreviation for either term.

Fresh Flowers would be considered a Short Film and it touches on kindness in the face of tragedy.

Tune in right here for the Premiere!

Fresh Flowers was written, directed, and produced by yours truly for the Fall 2018 COMM 505 Class – Production Process Script to Screen at Walla Walla University in the Cinema, Religion, and Worldview Masters Program – Click Here to visit the Program Page.  It was written based on the following Prompt:

Character 1: A man in his late thirties, who is very eccentric
Character 2: A woman in her late forties, who is very helpful.
Location (Setting): The story unfolds on a country lane.
Situation: Something precious has been lost.
Theme: Caring.

Once the writing was submitted and edited based on peer and instructor feedback it was time to select a cast and schedule the recording.  Martin Hodnett (Mark), Marie-Claire Boutrin (Lisa), and Robert Engram (Larry) graciously accepted to work on the project and did a wonderful job.  Here’s a picture of us during the reading session prior to recording…

We had fun but it was truly an eye-opening experience because of the crazy amount of work.  I think we all left with a new found respect for film makers, especially me, for all that they have to deal with for projects that may or may not hit their intended mark.  My goals for this film is to have 100 Views with 50% watching the entire video and 10 shares in the week following the Premiere.  I’ll update this page with my results.   Below is a behind the scenes video of Fresh Flowers…
