Musings by Snehal aka Fearless, a filmmaker with a hankering for technology and science.  

Shoot and Edit a Short Film in 4 hours?

Yup, that's what we did for the Dances with Films - The Last Independent Film Festival.  We shot a 2 minute short called Toasted and had to edit simultaneously to finish on time.  Using Canon DLSRs and a hopped-up PC running Adobe Premiere CS5, the workflow was flawless and everything happened in real-time without conversions. 

The film debuted on the big screen the NEXT DAY at the Sunset 5 theater.  I was the Cinematographer and we had a great team led by Writers/Directors/Actors Kevin and Rebecca.  We had a lot of fun and can't wait to do it again.  See the website for more info:
