We shot our final scene first thing this morning. It was 05h30, it was Northcliff Hill and it was freezing cold.
It started with a bang. We forgot to bring a vital prop and it took some quick thinking from Meren and some speedy driving from Ryan to sort us out with a pre-dawn bottle of whiskey.
Melanie Golden, Warwick Allen and Anel Stolp are editing like champs and the footage is looking really, really good. Ladies and gents, the Sony F55 is a game changer.
And then the Fastest Film Ever Made is taking on a new challenge. With our friends over at Halo Advertising we’re embarking on a brand new social media enhanced, super fast, super fun method of making amazing movie posters as well! We are changing the game at every turn!
Say hello to The Fastest Film Poster Ever Made.
Tonight at Wolves in Illovo, eight of Jo’burg’s top designers are gathering to test their skills against the clock.
At 19:20 the briefing begins. We’ll give the guys a bit of info – some images/some words/the necessary info. That is all.
At 19:30, they go berserk Paint, tablets (and whatever else it is that arty design guys use to make art) start poster creating furiously until… an hour later when the whistle blows and the posters are done.
The amazing news is that thanks to the power of modern technology and Vodacom you’ll be able to watch the whole thing live on our Facebook page.
This is where you come in. WE WANT YOU to vote for your favourite poster on our Facebook page or tweet us by using the #FastestFilmSA hashtag BEFORE 21:00, at which time we’ll announce our winner. Technology you beauty!
To watch the event click on the link above, then click on our uStream icon and watch the magic live.
So if you can’t come to Wolves (who by the way have delicious beer and red velvet cupcakes) play the voyeur and spy on all of us at the venue. Choose your favourite designer, check out their work at 20h30 when we upload it onto the Facebook Page and ‘like’ your favourite poster.
A massive R5000 Ben Sherman voucher is up for grabs to the winner. So vote people. These designers need themselves some shit hot Ben Sherman gear.
