This short film was made in 24 hours at the 2014 MAFIA Day (Make A Film In A Day) Competition sponsored by Austin School of Film and SXSW Film Festival. Teams of 4-5 students attend the competition at a 'lock-in' at a high school campus in Austin, TX. Upon arrival, each team must draw a genre and then select a prop that must be prominently featured in the film project. Teams have 24 hours to write, film and edit a short film (max 5 min).
