2020 (A 1917 Parody)

#colton mastro #michael lieberman #how to film one shot movie #roger deakins 1917 #Film & Animation
An adventure about two roommates who attempt to survive 2020.
This short film is a parody and love letter to the film 1917. It was written, produced, directed and edited by one person, shooting it entirely on a Fuji X-T3 with a Zhiyun Weebill-S. Due to the pandemic, 2020 took us over three months to shoot, reshoot and edit while dealing with faulty audio equipment, filming at dusk, safety regulations, scheduling conflicts, lost footage and so many more obstacles we had to literally jump over in order to make this short a reality. Honestly, it's a miracle this is being released and we hope you enjoy it. Maybe we'll get lucky and this will get us jobs because we're super unemployed. Thank you for taking the time to watch it.

Ascender is a production company where we blend cinema and gaming, but in reality it really isn't a production company, it's more like one dude, Stephen Ford, who creates a bunch of stuff and like a few people who help that dude make that stuff. They're pretty great. I think they're called producers? Oh, you wanna know their names? Ugh. Fine. Colton Mastro, Jenn McDonnell, Michael Lieberman, Jerome Knight, Brennan Mejia, Jake Gyllenhall, Will Smith, Jon Sudarkasa. Thanks for watching. If you're not subscribed by this point while reading this I'm going to come over to your house, bake you a cake, chill and watch The Boys Season 1 with you and then stab you or whatever. Okay. Cool. Bye.

Imagine waking up from a two year long coma in 2021, and thinking this was just some dystopian fantasy?

I know they are trying to be funny, and it is really funny, but this is legit a work of art. So beautifully done. And with little to no budget. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

There needs to be more than a simple thumbs-up for something that is THIS much better than average. Fantastic work.

The response to this has left me in tears for the past two days. I know this isn't that big of a project or anything but after all the time I put into creating this short: the sweat, the exhaustion, the countless hours of editing, and the rough road of trying to be a director and make cool stuff that people can enjoy has seriously been so hard in these past few years. Thank you all so so much.

As a resident of California and a former resident of LA I thank you for this. The scene of avoiding maskless Wal-Mart people with a wildfire in the distance was epic 2020.

The music of the movie is a masterpiece. You understand that when you realize all the tension that gets into each scene of a parody.
