Chicago used to have a 24hr film festival called "The Fast Forward Film Festival". You would gather at Atomics Coffee at 8pm and get a topic. Then you had until 5pm the next day to make a 3 minute film. There would be a screening that night at 8pm. Here are our entries as the Womp Rats from 3 separate festivals.

Our first festival entry was entitled "First Kiss". Being that it was our rookie season we only received and honorable mention.

Second time around the Womp Rats produced "Estrus". Unable to place, we were given Best Technical Video. Our prize was a betamax camera with a box of tapes!

The final chapter in the Womp Rats trilogy was "Thats Spooky". This time around we where able to clench the grand prize!!!

King Kobra Test Footage

Me and my buddy Mike are gonna make an amazing spy/action movie! We did a very rough shoot just so i could do some texture treatments to the footage. It's a working title and there will be action in the movie, not just a dude running around with a suitcase.
I'm currently working on making fake gunshot hits and fake limbs to chop off. I'll post the test videos as I finish them!
