Relic Hunter - a Potato Riot Film
In the year 2050 the game show "Relic Hunter" sends contestants into the past to retrieve lost artifacts. In this, the season finale, Skyler must beat Zimo to save an early novel by the greatest writer of our times. In the heartstopping chase through time, she learns that winning isn't everything.
We created this short film as an entry into the Midnight Movie Madness competition. We were given two weeks to make a film "about a contest" in the science-fiction genre. The filming took place over two days and editing and special effects took up the rest of the time. The bluescreen effects were done in our living room (you can tell!) under less-than-ideal lighting conditions. We had a noisy jazz-guitarist neighbour who you can hear over most of the futuristic scenes.
