Inspired by Scott Pilgrim, I wanted to give my take on musical battles and outrageous special effects. As a musician and explosion enthusiast, this film has subconsciously been years in the making. Creating the soundtrack and adding obnoxious visuals sounded like an amazing time, and I indeed... had an amazing time.

 

Originally, this was a battle between two bands using "air instruments" outside near a full crowd. However, gathering large crowds can be very hectic and an unappreciated detail. So there were some major story changes. In the end, I think the final draft reflects everything I wanted to come out of this film.

Enjoy the madness.
