Independent filmgroup Torrid Productions has a new trailer out for a new shortfilm on its way to this year’s film festival circuit, and not without a sense of intrigue. The shortfilm is titled Agent 6, and I first learned about this project a couple of months ago through actress Bridger Anne Fox who shot her fight scene in the course of one weekend.
Agent 6 Trailer
Desciple: Myself, as well as most of the filmmakers, are from the disciplined filmmaker 101 background that most professionals require on their sets. This was an opportunity to have fun by breaking the rules and get back to the “FUN” of just getting together with your friends and making a “Run and Gun” movie which is very similar to the mindset of 48 hour film festival.
D: Hyper-Reality is a concept I invented to counteract to many of the reality shows that has taken over the industry. There was NO SCRIPT! Who ever showed up was in the film. The story developed as we were filming. The only pre conceived notion was that the idea was of an assassin was going to use his mental health benefits from his job.
D: Principle photography took place on 2 Sundays during the day because that was the only time we had access to my buddy’s work office.
D: No one knew, not even me, what was going to happen. Mainly, the challenge was to get it done quickly before people got restless.
D: Am a big fan when it’s effective. I tend to cast people who are naturally born characters. It’s easier for them to make their own personalities bigger than life opposed to having to read for a part of a character they are not familiar with.
D: The answer is yes. I try not to take things too serious because i’ve spent too much time taking this business way too serious.
D: Nothing was storyboarded or rehearsed. As real martial artists, the actors were able to let their hair down and fight as if there was no set choreography. Everything was on spot.
D: We all laughed the whole time. No pressures of being serious.
D: It’s an art form that is very visual and emotional. It’s a physical story. I love Woo Ping choreography.
D: SHortz! in Chico – ACTION ON FILM in So. Cali. More screenings coming.
D: A concept of a crack head and a heroine addict who stumble upon a child pornography ring and they decide to become heroes without getting busted.
D: Jump in! Finish what you’ve started. Your cast and crew will thank you. Don’t worry about getting the latest camera out there because it will be outdated in a few months. Just keep making product and watch your talent, style and efficiency develop.
Most importantly, NEVER BURN ANY BRIDGES…cuz you’ll never know….you’ll never know.
