In our 2 week tradition we picked the following out of a hat:

Theme: Tea Time
Prop: Stuffed animal
Line of Dialogue: “I like eating babies”

After a group session of brainstorming, Aaron went off to write us a script over the first 5 days of the challenge.

We filmed it in one day on the following Saturday. This was our first true HD film using two Canon T3i cameras.

After shooting wrapped, Joe edited over the following week, adding Scott Kos’ score as soon as he completed it.
The film premiered at the 2014 Phoenix Comicon Film Festival. It was well received to a decent sized audience.

This film is featured on the DreamStalker Films Shorts Volume II DVD and Blu-Ray.
