Short Film of the Day: 3 Minutes

Why Watch? Because all a story needs is a gun and a girl.

This high-intensity short is a showcase of action – both stunt work, hand-to-hand combat, gun battling, and a surprise or two. It’s shot fluidly (thankfully avoiding an overly shaky camera), and it’s got a clever hook to hold it all together.

That’s about it. Nothing fancy. Nothing crazy. Just good, solid action with a few curious costumes (or at least one) and a little bit of movie love. If you’re interested in the pre-production and planning that went into making this film, there’s a comprehensive production diary for it that might provide a little insight for those interested in making something action-oriented.

What does it cost? Just, you know, 3 minutes of your time.
