Log Line: Ghosts, trashy elves, hell police, farm animals, little kids, and a monster get tangled up in a wacky adventure.
Background: The Green Screen Challenge # 1 is a feature length film that was filmed in one day at The Chapel in St. Louis Missouri. The project involved five teams of three or four people who improvised their scenes in front of a green screen. 28 people participated on shoot day.
There are 25 scenes and three musical numbers. In each scene, the actors had to make sure they spoke one specific plot point, but the rest of the scene was totally made up. As the watched the other groups do scenes, they were able to refer to all the events in the movie. The film production schedule stayed on track, and filming finished one hour early.
The cast and crew are truly exceptional individuals who provided stability, creativity, and professionalism to the production.
