The After Party: A Short Film

For the past few weeks I’ve been working on the script and location scouting for a project called The After Party. It was our final for my film production class.

Austin Elliot and I wrote the script, and acted in it. Tim Rother wrote the storyboard, edited the script, and directed. I was the post production editor.

Pre-production took place in the two weeks coming up to the shoot, and the actual filming was all done in one night in roughly 6 hours.

The budget was non-existent, so I went and bought a set of camping lights that we used for just about every shot, and things like the shovel came from our houses.

The first track from from Kevin MacLeod, who graciously makes royalty free music for anyone who wants it, and the final piece was my personal favorite song from my best friend Taylor Burdette under the name The Fear of Being Lonely. You can purchase his album here:

I wouldn’t say that The After Party is anything incredible, and I could point out a myriad of small mistakes in the final cut, but I’m quite happy with how it turned out. For a couple of students only a few quarters in to film school, our professor and classmates absolutely loved it, and I hope you do too.

Thanks for all the support everyone gave us, and we’re looking to only get better from here.
