Belize Film Festival and The Exquisite Corpse Project

Share

Last night I went to go see the Exquisite Corpse Project which was playing at the Paradise Theater for the Belize Film Festival. It does not come as a surprise that the film has one the following awards: Audience Choice Award – Dances With Films (2012), Best Documentary – LA New Wave Film Festival (2012), and Best Director – LA New Wave Film Festival (2012).

I was riveted to the movie from start to finish which says a lot, having ADD tendencies sitting through a full length movie without getting restlessĀ  is often a challenge for me. I would also say it is definitely worth watching again, which I am sure I will do with tacoboy at some point. He was feeling over socialized and needed to quietly chill out with aircon and remote control .

I am not going to reinvent the wheel in explaining the premise of the movie and have used the text below from The Exquisite Corpse Project facebook page. I hope you will like their page even if you have not seen the movie and do so in support of wanting to do something cool like making a feature film and actually doing it . You can also check out the official Exquisite Corpse Project website.

In this first-of-its-kind crossover comedy, director Ben Popik brings together five comedy writers, and surprises them with a challenge: to each write fifteen pages of a movie, having read only the previous five pages of the script. They agree with one stipulation: if they write the movie, he has to make it.

It’s a comedy, a love story, a psycho-sexual thriller, and a supernatural adventure all in one. Meanwhile, documentary footage of the writing process provides an inside look into the often-hilarious creative process, as well as the group dynamics that make collaboration between friends difficult.

    Thanks Emily. It was great and the movie very funny. After party was fun but I felt the lateness of it this morning and did not make it out of bed till 7:30am as a result.

    You looked really nice in your pretty dress last night! The film really was great, wasn’t it? I laughed and laughed. I am sure I will watch it again too. Glad the after party was fun! It was too late for us so good to see some photos.
