Overcast - Short Film
Wanted to share with everyone our latest short film, 'Overcast'.
It's a decidedly more-stylized, more-ambiguous father-son movie than most of our Atomic work- but in that offered us an opportunity for more experimentation to try out somewhat of an 80s pulp-thriller vibe in the cinematic aspects and music. And also allotted us one of our first chances to work with a child actor (and a handful of other new talent) on a non-commercial project in recent years.
The end result is a 7-minute short we're pretty happy with and hope you all enjoy. It was a ton of fun to put together and netted awards for Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Musical Score in the 48 Hour Film Project this past month.
But perhaps more-tellingly: The short film also stands as one of our most skeleton-crew endeavors in recent years- assembled by an on-set crew of just two people (director/DP and boom/AC), with myself writing, editing, and producing and our composing compiling the music from afar. In that respect, it was a unique challenge and a hard-fought creation- but hey, if nothing else that proves just how essential simply having the right people doing and trusting eachother in the right thing is.
If you've got any comments or questions- please do voice them here, and I'd love to discuss.
