The Shadows (48 Hour 2010)

We have been participating in this years 48hour film project machinima contest. 21 teams have been competing with creating an entire machinima film within 48 hours. Our contribution this year was the film “The Shadows”. Our task was to create a Horror film featuring a journalist “Jack Schmidt”. It was necessary to use the prop “water” and the following line of dialog has been given : “There is one thing i can do that you can’t”. We started with making a horror film but we ended with making a “Horror comedy”. Things evolved somewhat unexpectedly during the shooting. Enjoy…
