The Switch: A 48 Hr Film Contest

Last year I entered a local film festival that gives you only 48 hours to write, direct, shoot, edit, create music and finish a short film based on a random genre you pull from a hat. So once again, I decided to enter the Lynchburg 48 Hour Film Contest again this year, and this is the film my team created, called, "The Switch."

The film shoot was extra special because Melissa (who plays ANI in Norman) was available that weekend to film, so I had a blast being able to work with her again. Thanks everyone for all your hard work!


Hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Norman news is heading your way soon! Stay tuned!
