"5 Links: A film corpse" | A film I made with 5 other directors



This is a film I made with 5 other directors (Zach Yarrington, Angelica Hodgetts, Ben Olsen, Megan Schulz). We created this film for a class at the University of Oregon.
The film was inspired by the Surrealist game called "Exquisite Corpse". (it has nothing to do with an actual corpse). Basically the exquisite corpse is a game made of a few rules to help spawn creative output. The rules we followed in making this film were:
-Each director has (roughly) a 2 minute segment in the film.
-The directors cannot share any information about their segment with the other directors.
-The director and the succeeding director have to share a transition scene between each others segments to keep the story going. The two directors can only share information needed to continue plot, such as actors, location, prop, etc.

Here is the times of each director:
Ben Olsen (start - 4:17)
Angelica Hodgetts (4:17 - 6:30)
Zach Yarrington (6:30 - 10:00)
Bryson Michael (10:00 - 13:00)
Megan Schulz (13:00 - End)
