Did You Know?


The short film was initially conceived as a short promotional video for the conference but eventually grew into a short film that only had a budget covering the actors costumes. The most impressive fact about this shot film besides the virtually non existent budget was that it was put together in only two weeks from idea to pre-production. Some of the actors only had a week or less to learn all their lines and not even in their own native language. A few of the cast don't even speak the language that was used in the film and tirelessly worked with the screenwriter and director to deliver their performance. One of the most impressive feats tackled was that the complete amateur crew of film makers and cast worked for two days back to back to shoot all the necessary footage with only a handful of basic equipment to use on multiple locations moving the production between locations and setting up there like a well oiled machine or a seasoned production crew. Not to mention all the efforts and assistance from the cast who even got their own hands dirty to help the filming crew get the shoots they needed to make the whole endeavor into a 20 minute short film. After all the lights and cameras were switched off the post-production crew worked for another two months assembling the footage and dealing with all the problems that happen during filming. From dealing with changing weather and lighting conditions or dawn light to battling with inevitable mistakes that may happen when capturing sound. In the end when the whole film came together in final assembly as well as it could be a story that began with a simple idea put into a screenplay emerged even better than the producers imagined it in the beginning.
