Stuff I Made: The Last Day of Spring
Click here to watch on YouTube if this isht isn't working.
In honor of the last day of spring, here is my friend Hinkleberg's account of how this movie, The Last Day of Spring, came to be:
Evan and I suffered 26 hours to make this. Now it's your turn.
The Coolidge Corner theater in Brookline used to host open screenings and request that filmmakers make short films based on a monthly theme. Despite having over 30 days to prepare for "The Last Day of Spring," Evan and I waited until the Friday before and slapped this together following the premise, "Let's make something awful. And act like it's awesome." My recollection is that Evan mostly watched the World Cup while I sat in my bedroom editing and photoshopping furiously. But still, I think I put in about 26 hours total. And this is the result.
Imagine what 30 days could have yielded! (The same, only in widescreen.)
