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 got involved-, locations were switched, time was limited, and there were no actors! It was rough. Eventually, we all laughed about it over McDonald's and a movie. 

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.
