I created a movie in 10 days

Second Chances Movie Poster

From concept to wrapping on post-production. I recently wrote and directed my first film in 5 years.

Like any film project I’ve worked on, after it’s all said and done, you look back on what happened to get it made and find it hard to believe you made it. For me “Second Chances” was a miracle and last minute project. Created for the 2013 IFP Phoenix Breakout Challenge, I waited a full two weeks from the kick off before I decided last minute to try and make a movie to enter. I started on a Thursday night with registration and getting my theme for the challenge. Afterwards, the story outline and script were completed in less than 24 hours. All my casting was done between Friday and Saturday, with a table read on Sunday. One of my support leads became ill and I had to recast her the night of the table read. Then there was the locations, I didn’t have those until Sunday as well, the day before we shot. Shooting was over the next two days and by Wednesday, we were finally in post-production, to have this project completed and turned in by Sunday four days later. Oh what a ride it was! This is my first time working with any of the cast and most of the crew and I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish at the last minute. I hope you enjoy the urban fantasy drama “Second Chances” as much as I did making it.
