Web Cinema: Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge 2011 – Rat Race

In a post-apocalyptic, rubble-strewn world, where the end came not from a nuclear war nor an alien invasion, a ragged man desperately tries to escape from a ruthless hunter…

Made for the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge 2011.

The whole film (apart from location scouting and casting) was done between 12:00 on Saturday and 11:30 on Monday morning. It cost £240 and a lot of goodwill.

Starring Kate Daley and Paul Renhard

Director — Dave Gilbank

Paul Renhard, Dave Gilbank, Roger Armstrong

Here’s another from the stable of entries for the Sci-Fi London 48 hour comp. When I watched Precision the other day I wondered if the quality was as high I then watched Rat Race and got my answer. I really enjoyed the film and there was a great and in many ways realistic twist regarding the end of the world that I never saw coming. It was a shame the film was shot on such a sunny day as I think if was shot on a grim, grey and overcast day would have added to the whole post-apocalyptic feel of the short.

It just goes to show what you can do with £240, great job.
