The Code

This short was made in about one week, after Sam Goodwin suddenly found himself motivated to enter the second Project Greenlight contest. After failing to talk him out of it, Sean Donnelly tweaked his script, borrowed a Digital-8 camcorder, produced, shot, and co-directed this 3-minute short. It was shot in about 3 hours, and (as is probably evident) it was the first directoral effort of both Sean and Sam. Special thanks to Xerox Corp. for letting us shoot in their conference room!

The short starred several Xerox employees (Sam Goodwin, Carlos Terrera, Billy Stojanovski) as well as acting students Jason Treadwell and Chelsea DiNino. Chelsea went on to study acting at the prestigous AMDA in NYC and East 15 in London.
