Past Competitions

Award and Recognition

What motivated you to join this year's 3 Shots Film Fest?

One of us had an idea, a concept of a film that utilizes the three shots limitation set by the festival, enabling it to be the core of the storytelling and not just some restriction of a contest rule. With this concept of a film, everyone was filled with enthusiasm and we entered the festival.

Tell us what inspired you to create this film?

We used the time-repeating concept of Happy Death Day and Groundhog Day, and we condensed into three shots. And for the ambiance and the feel of the film, we tried to capture the sinister vibe of Joker and the thriller-esque feel of Ex Machina.

Share the challenges you have encountered and the learnings you discovered given the limitations.

Most notable one would be the continuous flow of the shot and having to choreograph every part for the camera to capture the story's sequence. We have learned the importance of planning the shots ahead and rehearsing before the actual shoot to avoid wasting valuable time.
