This Award-Winning film was created with the help of 4 people and myself from Harrison School for the Arts, in a 72-Hour Challenge, hosted by Gasparilla International Film Festival.

We were given exactly three days to write, shoot, and edit a film based off a randomly picked genre (horror) and three camera angles we had to incorporate (God's Eye, Dutch, and Match Cut.)

As expected, there was our fair share of obstacles. Cops even got involved. (Ask me about it.) Locations were changed, time was limited, there were no actors! It was rough. Eventually, we all laughed about it over McDonald's and a movie. 

In the end... we made it.

Narrowed down to the top three films for the 72-Hour challenge, "Imitation" was sent into the actual competition and proceeded to win 3/6 categories.

15 hours on set. 11 hours of editing. 

I hope you enjoy the hard work and passion our 5-person team accomplished.
