This project was a bit of an experiment for me, and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I was provided with one 400' roll of 16mm film, which is only about 11 minutes of shooting time.
I didn't think that was nearly enough of a challenge, so I made the whole film one single 8-minute (which means one take) steadicam shot... at night... with rain and lightning! We prepped for 11 hours, then shot for 8. Harrowing. Minutes.
