Yeah, the writer (who also writes on a slightly successful TV show called "Will and Grace") stuck those Ferris references in there as a lark. After the fact, he was so surprised with the results of the film and the others made at the same time that he felt a bit embarrassed that he hadn't spent more time writing the film--he thought it was just a quickie exercise. The idea behind Instant Films is not just getting films made in 48 hours; we promote the best possible filmmaking that can be done in that period (and for little or no money).

The lighting was truelly amazing and the scenery was profesional. The only problem the movie had was its originality and its Continuity PRoblem. The screenplay could be a little bit more original and it was like looking to a teen serie or something, not something adulst would watch.
The continuity problem can be adress to the use of 1 camera in most of the conversations. You did a great job doing this but the movie needed more action in certain cuts, especially close ups. To give you an example: the girls says something, then you introduce a reaction close up, then you go back, the other person begins to talk, reaction close up, etc etc. You could have introduced more action there by using more 'over the shoulder close ups' and more mixed audio conversations in which a person si suddenly abrupted in his conversation instead of the normal ' talk-listen-talk-listen-talk' conversation.

I found one obvious problem in the scene of the trio. The blond girl once says ' I would vote for you' and suddenly a weird wide shot is introduced. NO continuity there.

Things I like: The opening scene was amazing, the lighting, qwuality of the audio, overall set-up.

The overall quality was great for a 48 hour movie, seriously. Anyone who can do this kind of work in 2 days, you have to know what you are doing.

Anyone who can do better, let's see it.

Was there more than one camera used? Certain Edits seem like there were 2 cameras. If not, that's some really good re-acting and editing.

Charles..... Great job. I think everyone here wishes they had your experience and maybe even life.

Single camera only Bob. The actors were pretty good about matching their action.

I had to really go meat-and-potatoes (aka simplified) with the coverage on the last scene to get the shooting day done, it was getting pretty late. Hence the somewhat simplistic approach (and the unplanned "jump cut" when the candidate heads out the door).

Jose:

I think you were suggesting cutting away to reactions during someone else's dialogue--I believe the film has plenty of that. I tightened up the dialogue as much as possible with that method. Also I'm not sure which wide shot you are referring to. Perhaps you have confused that with the moment where the blonde girl suggests that the other two clean her house for her, which then cuts to a wide shot with dirty dishes in the foreground...?
