So not long ago the people in my work team and I put together a little film project called I Ain’t Your Caffeine Monster.
It’s just three minutes long, and features the strange encounter that a young guy named Joey has at one point with an unexpected and unwanted advisor…his coffee cup!
It’s actually based on a longer script that I wrote, which is very loooooosely inspired by an incident that I experienced on one of my first film jobs that I ever worked on after college. (That story will have to keep until another day)
We cut down the ideas to just a few minutes, and tacked on a simplified ending which works as an ending, but I’ll be honest, I’m not super-proud of. We filmed it one night this past June.
The whole thing was, amongst other things, an entry into a film contest called My RØDE Reel 2019, sponsored by Røde, a producer of microphones and other audio gear. We won a microphone for being one of the first 200 entries (still waiting for it to arrive) and could potentially win a bunch more prizes if the judges like our work.
Also, we can win some prizes in a “People’s Choice” category if enough people vote for us. If you are feeling supportive and you like the film, you can do so at this link:
But even if not, you can watch the film below. Enjoy!
You can also watch our Behind the Scenes video, which was part of our contest entry requirements:
