A few months back while browsing through No Film School’s site, I saw a post regarding a Short Film by Ayz Waraich and Martin Wisniewski called LOOT. They released the film with the intentions of having other filmmakers remix the film and put their own spin on it. They hoped others would take their work- chop and screw it up- creating brand new works of visual art. The original film was made with a $500 budget and an experienced crew but this no budget flick was intended as a way to give back to the film community. They had fun shooting the film and in turn wanted other filmmakers to have fun remixing it. This is just WiseMind Film’s interpretation of that short film, Hope you enjoy. I have included a link to the original post from NoFilmSchool which lead me here so you can read up and actually watch the original version! Original Post Here
As I was scouring the web for a quick film fix! I went to one of my usual places to search for cinematic treasures (Shortoftheweek.com) and I stumbled upon this gem. At only 4 minutes long, this is another great example of why I enjoy short films so much. The story, albeit not a very complex one, still grabs your attention right from the jump. After a few seconds of watching a coin spinning we see a lonely skater who happens to ride past it but his attention was immediately drawn to the coin. Once the skater examines the coin and puts it in the meter the action commences. Continue reading

A short film, to me, does it’s job by leaving you hungry for just a little more. Due to the nature of a short film (any film 40 min or less), we dont get a full back story to our characters and often times we as viewers as dropped in a specific moment in the characters life. We get to see things unfold just as the characters do, essentially we get a slice of their life. That is exactly what a short film is, a slice of Life. We don’t always need those elaborate back stories to get into the film, or to understand the characters.
Video after jump
This short film was shot about 2-3 years ago. It did not have a script or any real planning to it other than just pick up a camera and make a short. With limited resources and the ambition to make something, we came up with this. There are several reasons as to why we didn’t initially want to put this out there to be scrutinized and criticized to death (due to the poor lighting audio, and pretty much this being the 1st actual short film that WiseMind Films attempted), but then we recently found the footage in an old hard drive and decided to play around with it. It’s always good to revisit your work and compare to see how far you have come. It obviously isn’t going to win any awards or go viral but it’s a completed project that actually has potential to be expanded on. For those are following WiseMind Films you will eventually see with our future projects that they are all connected one way or another. Some of the hints and clues wont be so easy to pick up on but those who have a good eye will notice these little things.
