    Awesome! Really fun to watch. It would have been nice if the bourbon slowly took effect over the course of the film

    Who's to say it wasn't taking effect on the director

    Nope. But it was done in 33hours (as stated above the challenge ran from 9:00am to 6pm the following day)

    However, I did have an entirely watchable version (including the colouring) by 11pm on the first day.
    9am theme's announced and we knock aroud ideas, settling on Cluedo and the colour separation.
    By 11.30 my wife has all but given up dismissing just about ever idea I have as rubbish, but I persist and by 12.30 have the script which she admits is not too bad. It helps that her son has agreed to be in it (he was due to be in his first ever amateutr musical when lockdown struck).
    We create a body outline with making take and have lunch.
    Shooting completes around 6pm and I throw together a rough edit tigether with colouring and this is complete b about 10.30pm
    The whole of the next day was spent discussing (arguing) over the music track (two hours at east wasted on this), adding the sound effects (phone call), creating the titles/opening Cluedunnit graphic and much needed improving the keyin of the colour (it stll "leaks" n places but it's much better. With an hour to go I decided to attempt the graphics at the end for the credits - which is why they are a bit rough, but I think it was more fun to include them than leave them off.

    Broadly speaking, I become more creative the tighter the brief. Give me a "make a film about anything" and I'll struggle. Here the brief was the theme (Who Done It?) but also stictly limited in that it had to be done within the house/garden due to lockdown and within the narrow time frame.

    Me too, usually. This was almost point and shoot.
    Stage shot. White balance. Shoot.
    Rinse & repeat.

    No live audio makes it 100 times easier.

    Excellent job - I loved the theme, the music and the cast - the character colours were a nice touch

    One comment - I found the reflections in the glasses distracting - Iím not sure how they handle that in the movies, but Iím guessing they must use special lenses
