Keeping Station: Behind the scenes of our new film

As you may or may not know, last week I was involved in the annual V48Hours Film Contest here in New Zealand, which gives you from Friday evening to Sunday evening to make a short film using a number of compulsory elements. There is to be no story making or shooting prior to this weekend, which makes it a huge challenge, and a lot of fun!

Our team, Toowit Toowoo, consisting of about 11 core members, did a mixed-media film largely based around marionette puppets made of paper! We also incorporated 3D and lots of visual effect.

The 2 minute long film we made, 'Keeping Station' will premiere at the Academy theater in Auckland during the 21st heat of the competition on Sunday. A few weeks after that, we will pop it online and I will link it from here.

Here's the poster:
