STKTD: The Cube MIcro Short Pre Production

Eyes of a villain

Happy to find time to shown a few things and write about She That Kills The Dead progress!
A couple of weeks ago my go to film buddy Robert Earl Ray called me and said “I have a free day tomorrow, want to film something?” …Like I’m going to turn that down.

I said yup. He said he wanted to try an exercise where we did a sort of one day film project.
Write, script, storyboard, prep and shoot in one day.
Editing, sound, color correcting and other post goodness would be done another day to maintain a level of quality. The next day we met, I had a clean, blank sketch pad and we began talking ideas!
After the plan was laid out I asked my friend Juan at Local Honu if you could film at his location. Very cool of him to agree on short notice.

There is a main villain to the STKTD world. I wanted to introduce him without introducing him, if you get my dander. Pretty much every character (even the side dead characters) has a story. They are all revolving recurring characters, as is life.

I tried something a little different this time when scripting. I scripted as I created storyboards. It was a bit more complex. I had many advantages such as, dialog direction, highlighting specific dialog with camera angles. It seems to make things much more clear to me. It saved a little anxiety on set for me as well.
Having the storyboards on location also helped our small crew Natalie Bilski and Ben understand the direction we were going. It seemed to help us visually get on the same page.
Here are a few of the story boards:

After we got the footage I took some shots with my cell phone. They are not showcase quality, but good enough to show here:

Last thing I would like to add is the band we get to feature for this bit. A damn good band by the name of Thee Imperial Royales The song we feature is titled Ghosts Of Rusted Chrome.

We look forward to showing you all this project. We are very happy with the outcome and look onward to creating, learning and sharing more! Thank you for reading!
