An Ode to 90s Romantic Comedies


A couple weekends ago, I competed in yet another ACU Film Fest event: 48 Hour Film Fest. As the name implies, we had only 48 hours to shoot and edit a short film. At 6 p.m. on Friday, a list of control elements was released and we had until 6 p.m. on Sunday to turn it in. Then the films won based on popular vote. I've had an idea for this short film for a while, so this was finally my chance to make it happen. I'm obsessed with classic 90s rom-coms like You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, and Sleepless In Seattle. And since I saw this scene in The Holiday, I've fallen in love with the screenwriting term called the "meet cute." A "meet cute" is the scene in a romance film where the couple meets for the first time in an endearing and ironic way.


We got the Id Infinity team back together again for this fun project! I'm so thankful they helped me make another one of my ideas a reality. And I'm still tickled I got Max to ride his motorcycle in this short ^_^ v

You can watch the other two films, too:  Piercing Hazards (my brother's entry) and Notes.
