I’ve been busy these past few months learning about filmmaking, especially the writing side of things, but also about the audio recording/sound mixing side. Most of that learning came via Wicked Window Productions‘s latest film, Resurgence. This was presented at the 2013 Action Film Challenge. It’s about 15 minutes long, and received nominations for Best Actress, Best Villain, and Best Directing.
You can also read the full script here, including noting the differences between the film and the script (most of the differences had to deal with location changes and other limitations), as well as seeing the alternate version, WITHOUT the Joey character. And yes, the original name was Conversion. (NOTE: please excuse the hideous formatting. The program I was working with, Scripts Pro for the iPad, is great at a lot of things, but final drafts isn’t one of them. For that, I’ll use Final Draft.)
- I’m in the film as a security guard near the beginning (1m 49s). I later get killed next to a machine-gun toting stunt woman we nicknamed “Boot Camp Barbie.”
- I perform in the end credits, playing the violin parts.
I’ll likely write a post about the lessons learned here (such as spending all the time you need in pre-production, instead of trying to figure things out on filming days), but for now, please enjoy the film. I’ve even put a few bonus features after the fold: A joke commercial for Suave, outtakes, and pictures.
