My first time entering into a film festival competition in December 2005 resulted in one of my very favorite shorts. “Just Wonderful” was produced as part of the First Night Spokane 48 Hour Film Festival. Twenty-one teams were given a theme, a prop, and a line of dialogue that they then had to use to create a 3-5 minute short film inside of 48 hours. Those assigned rules were:
- Theme: “World of Wonder”
- Prop: A bottle cap
- Line: “Wow, velvet really is soft!”
Just Wonderful won both the 1st Place “Jury’s Choice” and 1st Place “People’s Choice” awards. I produced the film with my friends Joe and Luke of BaratsAndBereta.com.
