Wellington Finalist of NZ 48 Hours Film Competition

A respectable family man wakes up in a straight jacket, a mouth gag, a semi-naked man on his bed and a lamb in his bedroom. And no memory of what the hell happened.

What would you do if you wake up one morning in the most embarrassing and weird situation you could imagine and you didn't remember anything? Would you face the consequences, even though you don't know why you are there? Or would you just run away? This is what happens to Charlie, the protagonist of this story. He will have to make a decision: try to explain his wife or...

This is our submission to the 2016 New Zealand 48 Hours Film Competition. A film made in 48 hours, that means from script writing to final edit. And we got City Finalists! From 130 entries, only 15 films made it to the finals, so proud of this! You can only do this when you have an amazing team.

The conditions of the competition were:

  • Make a shortfilm between 1 and 5 minutes in 48 hours.
  • With a character name Charlie Flowers who is thoughtful.
  • With a line of dialogue: "One more time".
  • With a prop: wool.
  • A camera technique: rack focus
  • And a random genre: real time
