Ever hear of The Stanley Parable? We made it a short film...
...and even got creator Davey Wreden's permission (and praise upon completion.) The Stanley Parable is a video game that plays with the basic elements of storytelling and creates a very trippy experience. When writing this, I was very insistent on keeping the original themes and creating as unusual a story as we could, while at the same time making it work for us and our limited resources. And Jacob, who did the majority of the directing and ALL of the editing, understood and had a vision that worked very well in my opinion. You can see him at the end.
If you can get past the guerrilla-style shooting, the royalty-free soundtrack and the occasional out-of-focus shot, I'd love to know what people on this site think of our little student project. It's 16 minutes long, I hope you enjoy it!
We are suckers for feedback of all kinds, so after watching it don't forget to come back here and tell me what you thought!
