Sophia and Michael to present Filmmaking for Nerds: How you can create your own movie at Vienna Nerd Institute in MuseumsQuartier Vienna

Filmmaking for nerds

Event in Wien by Vienna Nerd Institute on Wednesday, November 15 2017


The premise was that we'd help the attendees write, shoot, and edit a film in 3 hours. We expected to just shoot a scene with maybe two people sitting and talking at a table or something. But, as it's the Nerd Institute, the class decided they wanted to do a time-travel movie with special effects. Sophia and I were skeptical that we could get it done, but disinclined to shoot down their ideas. Lo and behold, we shot and edited a rough cut (which I spent another hour or so cleaning up) in 3 hours. Here it is!
