SHORT FILM "Gaffa" | Behind-the-Scenes Tropfest Entry

Date: 27th of December, 2012
Written By: Phuong Le

Last Saturday we were on-location at the CraigFX warehouse in Marrickville for an indy short film production for this year’s Tropfest. Tropfest is a prestigious international short film festival where budding film-makers are asked to create a short film based around a particular “signature item”.

This year’s signature item is “BALLOON” and entrants will be competing for over $100,000 in prizes (not to mention all the glory of having your short film screened to thousands of people nationally).

The short, titled “Gaffa”, is an action-packed kung-fu comedy starring martial artist and TV personality, Andy Minh Trieu, and serial social media blogger, martial artist and actor, Maria Tran. Behind the scenes we had the lines of Craig Anderson of CraigFX and Adrian Castro of Fideo Films.

It was a very short turn-around – there were a couple of days of rehearsals and a single day to do the whole shoot. Below are a few photographs from the day. Video of bloopers will be uploaded at a later date.
