Drinks - Short Film (2020)

Drinks - Short Film (2020)

Just in time for the Holiday 2020 season, we present DRINKS. This is a short that DP and I conceived, wrote, put together, and shot very quickly awhile back as a little experiment. We wanted to see if we could make a larger-scale short film with no additional help. Just us. Zero additional crew. So we wrote the script, cast ourselves, brought on Emily as a third character, secured a location (very special thanks to Anne McKim and the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana!), and locked ourselves in for the night. We took turns running camera on each other. We had the camera on a stack of books for certain shots (we didn't even have a tripod for the shoot). We made this baby for $0 (well, save for the cost of two shirts, two ties, and a bunch of gas station sweet tea), and shot the entire thing in a single night. Ultimately, we made it just for us, but of course are now sharing it with you all. So in this gigantic crapfest of a year, we invite you to settle down this holiday season and have a drink with an old friend. Cheers, all...

"Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls."
