Winner of the 72 Hour Mind 2 Movie Challenge for 2015 –

Character: An Addict
Prop: A Weapon
Situation: A Weapon causes a Catastrophe


In this reality TV show, two contestants compete to determine whether a house is haunted or simply in disrepair.

Given a randomly-assigned character, prop, and situation, we had 72 hours to conceptualize, write, act, shoot, edit, and deliver a completed 5-minute (or less, credits not included) short film. Given “an intellectual,” “a communicator,” and “the intellectual enters a contest,” this is what we made.
