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!
Link To Short Film – Card Play
Insane LLama has had a lot of people come and act for us over the years, from our friends in the early years, to the trained professionals in recent years. A lot of these people we have come to consider regulars for us because they are ready to act for us in a moments notice.
We don’t really have exact terms to be considered one of our regulars; but for a loose definition we’ll just say that they had to be in 4-5+ short films and also been in a short film we made just for fun on the spot. Most of the professional actors we have worked with in recent years worked in our planned bigger short films which most of the time have a script written in advanced.
These latest years saw only two people really become a regular with us; which include the talented Zach Williamson and Mike Pinkerton. That doesn’t mean we won’t be getting any new folks to come along, we have our eyes on some actors we want to work on a regular basis and are always looking to expand our ranks of people we can rely on.
So far since 2006 there have been 21 dudes (We really need to find some of those ladies) which we have considered a regular here with us at Insane LLama. Last night I got bored and actually made posters/covers for all 21 of these true friends.
Here are all 21 of them for everyone to look at and closely scrutinize their faces. In alphabetical order of their first names. Enjoy!
