SofaCouch MovieFilms 2017 54 Film Fest Entry – “Safe

Here is our entry into the 2017 54 Film Fest.

Many thanks to our great cast and crew, as well as to Heidi Jones and Julie Hickey-Jones for allowing us to use their awesome home.

Did I say great cast and crew? Well, we won some awards!

Best Cast, Best Writing, Future Feature (given to the film they think has the most “legs” to be made into a feature), and Best Director: Carrie Thompson.  

Like most of our films, this one has a nice mix of humor and creepiness. When you can get your audience laughing one minute and uttering, “oooohhhh” the next, you know you got something.

Hush, Little Baby

This is a recent entry into the 2016 Knoxville Horror Film Festival. It screened on Sunday, October 23 at Scruffy City Hall during the Regional Shorts block of the festival.

Directed by Sam Comer and Carrie Booher Thompson and starring Carrie Booher Thompson and Lydia Weeks, with a special appearance by Mr. Bean (the parrot) and Joy Varville as his voice.

2016 54 Hour Film Festival Entry

This one took home a few awards:

Runner-Up Best Visual Effects, Best Actress for Carolyn Corley,  and Runner-Up for Best Film

 

We had a nice mix of old and new faces in this year’s 54 Hour Film Fest entry. Steve Trigg, Carolyn Corley, Asya Angelique Mounger, Tyler Gregory, and Jeff Snell (of “Dick Chicken” fame from last year’s 7-Day Shootout) joined the SofaCouch team for the first time and they all knocked it out of the park (see above re: Carolyn winning the Best Actress Award, which was actually presented as “Best Female Actress” – an appropriate name for someone associated with SofaCouch MovieFilms). And SofaCouch “regular” Tiffany Tallent brought it, as always.

As usual, our crew was small, but efficient. Carrie Thompson did a wonderful job directing. Randy Thompson kept things running smoothly. Laura Miller held the boom like a champ, and Jeff Snell pulled double duty running the slate. Sam Comer (me) did camera, lighting, and editing.

The elements for the 54 hour were:

Prop: A map

Line of Dialog: “I knew I’d see you again, I just didn’t know when.”

Action: A spin

We drew “Sci Fi” as our genre and went with something along the lines of a PG-rated Black Mirror episode. The story was written by Randy, Carrie, Tyler, and me in the first three or four hours after drawing the elements at the kickoff. We shot from early afternoon into the wee hours of the following morning at the lovely home of Greg and Kenlyn Stewart (you may recognize it from previous other SCMF shoots. They’ve always been extremely generous in offering their time and space for our projects).

All the effort was definitely worth it for a fine little film, and we’re always pleased to get some recognition from the judges.
