Behold the recipient of the 1st Place prize at the University of Dallas 2012 Tower Film Festival!

We had a ton of fun shooting (pun intended) and editing this. We spent hundreds of dollars (stupid?) on costumes and props and general overhead; totally worth it!

Themes include Conversion and the Just Life from our UD Core Curriculum; we had to include the phrase "That's debatable" and keep it under 7 minutes. The books used were The Confessions by St. Augustine and Plato's Complete Works.

The main character, Clyde Gibson, undergoes a conversion and seeks to understand what it means to have a just life. Hilarity and serious philosophical contentions ensue.

No humans were harmed in the making of this film. Hope you enjoy our project! We certainly had fun making it!
