Published on Oct 03, 2020
An adventure about two roommates who attempt to survive 2020.

This short film is a parody and love letter to the film 1917. It was written, produced, directed and edited by one person, shooting it entirely on a Fuji X-T3 with a Zhiyun Weebill-S. Due to the pandemic, 2020 took us over three months to shoot, reshoot and edit while dealing with faulty audio equipment, filming at dusk, safety regulations, scheduling conflicts, lost footage and so many more obstacles we had to literally jump over in order to make this short a reality. Honestly, it's a miracle this is being released and we hope you enjoy it. Maybe we'll get lucky and this will get us jobs because we're super unemployed. Thank you for taking the time to watch it.

Ascender is a production company where we blend cinema and gaming, but in reality it really isn't a production company, it's more like one dude, Stephen Ford, who creates a bunch of stuff and like a few people who help that dude make that stuff. They're pretty great. I think they're called producers? Oh, you wanna know their names? Ugh. Fine. Colton Mastro, Jenn McDonnell, Michael Lieberman, Jerome Knight, Brennan Mejia, Jake Gyllenhall, Will Smith, Jon Sudarkasa. Thanks for watching. If you're not subscribed by this point while reading this I'm going to come over to your house, bake you a cake, chill and watch The Boys Season 1 with you and then stab you or whatever. Okay. Cool. Bye.
