Four siblings gather on Christmas Eve for a night of dining, bickering, and singing?
This film was made for the Four Points Film Project 2018.
In three days, we were required to write, shoot, and edit this short film. A specific character, line of dialogue, and prop were required along with a genre of “Musical” adding to the layers of difficulty. I’m so very proud of how this movie turned out, and eternally grateful to all of the below people who worked on it. They did an amazing job.
Genre: Musical
Character: Phillip or Priscilla Powanda, Hypnotherapist
Line of Dialogue: “It’s never done that way.”
