MCat, the local community access television station held a contest this spring called “Do it in 72” which challenged local filmmakers to write, film, edit and submit a film all in the space of one long weekend – 72 hours.
Myself and a group of friends entered the contest and Sake Before Noon was our result.
We shot it very early on a Saturday morning before the sushi restaurant opened and after we got setup and had a few quick run-throughs, we only had about 2 hours to shoot and it certainly flew. There are a few things about it I am not totally happy with, but all in all, for 72 hours production time and a 2 hour shoot I am pretty pleased. Good job Team Cobra Strike Force!
