— As with most of my projects, I did everything myself. Storyboard, screenplay, production, camera, direction, etc. The budget was minimal: plant rental $30, pool rental $200, props $100, miscellaneous expenses $100.
I was afraid of problems with filming at the factory due to the specific contingent that works there. But, to my great surprise, during the filming process, the workers did not interfere, but only actively tried to help. For example, it was necessary to create an epic sheaf of sparks in the background of a welding fighter, they were so addicted to this process that they used up a large number of cutting discs for metal and ruined expensive fittings for production. All in the name of art!
The entire filming process took a total of 5 hours over 4 days. Filmed everything on a SONY A7iii camera and edited in Final Cut Pro.
