    Hey guys,

    Since lockdown slowed a lot of productions, I wanted to do a piece where I could only count on myself to do a short film in my place. It sounded so cool on paper, but I ended up calling my gaffer to help me on a couple of shots that needed some camera movement (I couldn't move the camera and be in front of it at the same time). So I directed, DP'd, acted, etc on this.

    I'm still trying to bring it down to 15min to be more festival friendly (it's currently at 16min) and I wanted to get your opinion on this short film.

    Thanks for watching!

    Hey, I enjoyed that. I liked the premise you came up with. Good lighting and performance too. It is remarkable that you did so much of this by yourself. A few of the shots felt a little long. I think that you should definitely be able to get this under 15 mins and I think it will be a stronger film for it. Good luck with your festival run!

    Hi! Thanks for watching and appreciating the effort. It was a good exercise to remind myself of the importance of each member in a film crew lol.

    Definitely agree with you on some shots feeling a little long. I was trying to avoid cutting on the bedroom sequence as I feel that one is important to build tension. But there are a lot of other shots that need to be faster.

    Thanks!

    Hey guys. I just got it under 15 minutes.

    I have a question. I did almost everything by myself as a pandemic "production", during lockdown, but I'm not sure how to credit myself. I had the help of my gaffer in some shots like I told you, but that's it. Should I just do a small text at the end explaining this and contextualize the film as "product of the pandemic"? Or maybe make up pseudonyms like Steven Soderbergh does?

    Thanks QuickHitRecord!

    On the mean time, here's the logline:

    In a post-covid world, where disinformation and conspiracy theories undermine society, a man living alone in his apartment must let another person enter his home.
