Bumper played at Toronto After Dark
I shot a bumper which played at Toronto After Dark (TAD or sometimes it's called 'TADDY'). They loved it, it's an incredibly tough fest to get into, all the features are professional with distribution, actors like Simon Pegg etc... have turned up and I'm happy the bumper played there. It's a good laurel to have but this bumper was shot purely for that festival which was celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Although I'm happy it played, I wanted to know if you think the bumper has any merit as a 'stand alone.' I can add more dialogue to it as there is more dialogue along the same lines but what do you think about it if it was a little longer, maybe as a short film to get into other festivals?
Oh, and the last cast member is wearing the school uniform (the blazer) of the festival director. It's not 'his' blazer specifically, but it helped.
What do you think? Is this potentially festival-worthy in other festivals?
