A Future of Fortune (Short Film)

September 23, 2011

This is a repost of a short film titled “A Future of Fortune”.  I directed, shot and edited the short in college back in 2009.  Previously I had to post this in parts of 4, but now here’s the short in full.  To be honest, there’s many things I dislike about the film.  I don’t like the pacing of the editing, it’s a bit slow.  I wish I had more time at the time to incorporate some music within the film.  I’ve moved on from this project so I’ve decided to let it be and learn from the experience.
