"Slow Connection"

This annual competition comes with rules: There is a prescribed line of dialogue, this year it was

"Take it easy I was just having some fun"

There is also a prescribed action, this year it was 'A key is hidden by pushing it into ice cream'.

The film has to under 5 minutes. (which is why the credits at the end pass by at express speed!).

After that from receiving the brief on Friday, the film has to be conceptualised, the script written, locations found, actors and crew briefed, the film shot, edited and submitted by Monday morning.

Quite a challenge but as usual Tori Turner and the rest of the CogWheel team rose to the occasion. My role was that of a bystander, alternately amused and bemused.
