New short film from Insane LLama! Titled ‘Card Play’ and Featuring: Eliot Schultz, Zach Williamson, plus Mike Pinkerton.
Three guys get involved in a high stakes game of cards, with each card flip building the tension even more.
Camera: Sony A7s with an Atomos Shogun
Lens: Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine lens
Sound: Rode NTG-3 to a Tascam DR-40
We had actually shot this film back in early January and were pretty far in post-production before I (Evan) had to turn my attention to my senior thesis films. Well after a grueling month and a half of thesis work I was able to return to Card Play this past weekend. The film had been our first time making anything after a semi-long break and was intended to prepare us for the other big January film we were making: ‘Communication’. We also used the shoot to test out our newest lens we had obtained: the Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine lens.
In that case pretty much the entire film was shot with that lens and it turned out great! I had to get use to the smaller space to work with but the more we shot the easier it was. Give the film a watch and tell us what you think, we love feedback. You can watch it through the Youtube link below or simply on the embedded video also below. Enjoy!

It’s been a while since our last post, but in this past month Insane LLama has been hard at work at our next big short film. I’m proud to announce Insane LLama’s newest short film: “Savage”.
This past weekend all of us here at the LLama went out and shot this movie in two days. The shoot was amazing and we are extremely proud of how everything is looking since we started to edit this piece this week. We are very eager to get this movie out to to you the audience; but we will do everything we can during this post-production period to make this the best short film it can be.
We are going to be sparse on plot details in this post; just know this is a period piece that follows an Englishmen, Spaniard, and black slave. The cast of the short did an amazing job and we would like to thank especially Zach Williamson and Brandon Somerville for coming out and putting everything they have into their roles.
Stay tuned to the blog in the upcoming weeks to see more details of this project and hopefully a release date in the future.
As always we have some stills from the movie to show everyone. Enjoy!
