Best "Short Narrative" Film: The Epiphany of Zebediah Clump
by Peter Falkenberg Brown, Jun 21, 2012
UPDATE - October 11, 2012: We are very pleased to announce that Zebediah Clump has won the Best "Short Narrative" Film Award at the 2012 Portland Maine Film Festival. The award was presented at the Maine College of Art on October 7, 2012.
"I enjoyed the film very much, and found myself cheering on Z as he experienced his epiphany!" said Dr. Maureen Ebben, Lecturer in Communication in the Communication and Media Studies Department at the University of Southern Maine. "It is an artfully crafted, charming and inspiring gem."
Our first film, "The Epiphany of Zebediah Clump", has been released! You can view the complete film below!
"A comedy/drama about the Venus Transit on June 5, 2012, and the supposed End of the World."
Zebediah Clump was doomed... In the darkened mind of Z. Clump, the tiny and seemingly insignificant movement of the planet Venus across the face of the sun was an event that reduced his body to a quivering jelly of unkempt terror. He spent the night of June 5th, 2012 curled on his bed in the fetal position, whimpering; waiting for the morning, and death, and the final depletion of his half empty glass...
Here is the YouTube link to the film. (We recommend that you click on the "Full Screen" link in the video viewer.)
The film was completed on December 26, 2011. We then began the process of submitting the film to various film festivals, around the country. We're still in that process, but have now entered the stage where we can also show the film publicly. (Some film festivals require a "premiere status", which delayed our public release of the film.)
The film was written, directed, produced, narrated and edited by
Peter. He is also the main actor, unless you count various birds, squirrels, flowers and trees; none of which were harmed in the making of this film. The film was shot with a Canon 60D DSLR. Peter used the fabulous, newly Open Source Lightworks NLE program to edit the film (http://lwks.com).
The images below are the front and back cover of our DVD case for the
film. The film is based on the short story of the same name, located here.
