The Package (2008)

Finally!

The movie is supposed to be 2 minutes long, and that took around half an hour of footage. To get that footage needed around 6 hours of filming. And to put it all together took two whole days of editing, and me staying up till 4:00am last night... Blaaaah i'm so tired...

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it; we were supposed to have a total crew of 6 people filming and acting and so on, but because 4 of them decided they were too busy, we ended up as two people, me and Basharo. He does the main character acting, I do everything else from directing to filming to etc etc :p

But honestly though, a lot of fun, some very very corny lines (GUARD IT WITH YOUR LIFE etc), and overall a good laugh...




The movie was basically for a short movie competion by MBC, and we had to squeeze everything into two minutes (that's why we cut some of the scenes short, and the whole thing sorta moves very quick). If you like it and want to help the cause, head over to MBC Movies in Motion, sign up and GIVE THE MOVIE 5 OUT OF 5.

Oscars, here I come!

That was pretty good, and I'm not making that up because I know you.

The movie really kicked in for you with editing with the car chase. You have some skill there with the speeding stuff.

Plus, you kept the shaky cam to a minimal, which is something Bay hasn't learned yet.

There's some good work here, keep it up. (ever tried making a music video from one of your musical friends?)

That was fun.

Leaving the needless polite compliments, I've found it tacky and unsurprisingly pointless..

Great job man!

Just two comments:

- The lighting in the meeting room at the beginning could have been more dramatic by fixing in some spotlights.
- You should have put a Nintendo Wii in the bag LMAO
