META was my first 72-Hour Film Contest entry, and it won 1st Place. This was done for the now defunct Charleston FestivALL competition. Everyone who entered had to make a 7 minute short film incorporating the theme “discovery.” Each participant was also given two words to incorporate — mine were “confront” and “void.”
I love movies about making movies. Adaptation is my favorite movie. I love breaking the fourth wall. So I think this came out of my love for those things as well as my fear that if you really are supposed to write what you know… what if I don’t know that much?
