F3 Explained

Posted on December 27, 2007

A Death Down South-19

In looking at past posts, I realized I never laid out what exactly an F3 is, the project that has and will be taking my attention and life for the next few months.

The F stands for Filmmaking. The F1 was our little digital short, the F2 the half day film exercise, and now the F3. Here’s a basic rundown:

  • 6 Page Script
  • 6:30 Minute Runtime plus 1 for Credits
  • 2 Production Days of 12 hours plus 1 for lunch
  • 2 Hours Overtime
  • 1600 ft of film (about 44 minutes)

We have a full crew composing of first and second years. (1 is a first year position, 2 second year. Bold is what the Film School considers ATL)

For me, it’s three sets down, four to go.
