Short Film:
"Plastic Nightmare."
This is a short film that I shot as my final project for my photo storyboarding class at Academy of Art.

* Double click on the film to watch it bigger at Veoh.

The film took about 2 days in pre-production (come up with the story, draw the storyboards, scout locations, get the props), 4 hours of filming (shooting draft version on one camera and final on the other), then another 2-3 days in post production (editing, clean ups, effects, music).

Reel Breakdown:
Demo Reel of 2007.
