Much in the same way we just started shooting our first short, Sick Day, I jumped into making a one minute movie this summer for the double-deadline of one minute film festivals in Edmonton and Toronto.
When we decided to make the jump into scripted comedy last year, we hit that roadblock a lot of other people hit: we got scared. We didn’t know what to do, how to do it, or if any of it would even work. So, in our own small way of encouraging you to push through your own roadblocks we present our first short – “Sick Day” – which is not all that great, but helped us kickstart a new path and hopefully shows you that the first time out just has to get you started. If you’re hesitating because you don’t think you’ll be good enough or you don’t know what to do, let this movie’s shortcomings be an example of how the first thing you make might not be great but you can get better really quickly, and we’ve all got your back.
So get out there and make the things you’re scared of making!
