Entry to the 2015 Knoxville 54 Hour Film Fest

“Latent Image”

Based on true events, “Latent Image” is about a relic of the Cold War getting into the wrong hands, and old-school agents of espionage doing everything they can to keep it from one another. 

We had 54 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film of up to seven minutes in length in a selected genre with these required elements:

Selected genre: “Action/Spy”

Prop: A compass

Line of dialog: “This isn’t my first time”

Action: A dance

Unfortunately, we did not get the film in within the allotted time (missed it by mere minutes), but it was still eligible for screening at the festival. It looked nice on the big screen at the Regal Downtown West Theater, and the audience response was very positive.
