Cashback

Context

The remake drill during the third year at IAD is about forming a team around a short film project that remakes five to eight minuts of a pre-existing film.
As there were many students in the photography department, one director-student had to make two films : I volunteered and both of my project were accepted. So the same principle applies to both this film and the Cashback’s project : the original scenes are rewritten so we can tell a tiny independent story. Each team has four days of shooting (indoor and outdoor).

You can also read the educational note I wrote after the shooting to analyse the major issue the crew and I experienced. (which also explains why the comedians look like they’re underneath a lead weight !)
