Waking Hours, short film from George Adamson


Waking HoursUniversity of Lincoln Film-making Society 72 hour Competition Winner 2014 Directed and Cinematography by George AdamsonProduced by Zak AtkinStory by George Adamson and Jack DowellScreenplay by George Adamson and Graham WilsoncroftStaring Jack Dowell & Graham Wilsoncroft (Voice)Editing, Sound recording and mixing by Harley Burnett Special Thanks to the University of Lincoln and the UoL Film-making society Our challenge for The University of Lincoln Film-making society was to create a short film within 72-hours which must contain the line "She bought me a drink and now I don't know what to do". We created 'Waking Hours' by filming all the visuals and creating the story through a narration. We had a rough idea of where to start, but things really came together in the editing process. We really didn't mean to make a film as serious we ended up making. We won first place in the competition; I personally feel honoured since we came up against very, very strong competition and it was a very close call! Thank You to my team members for all their hard-work and time they put into making this film, it has been really great to have everyone collaborating, learning and sharing ideas. Strong Language warning, best to listen to with headphones if you're at work!
