A film director and his assistant get into a heated argument over the schedule after the cast fails to show up. Little do they know, the worst has yet to come…

Behind the Project

I remember on several occasions whereas a friend group we would binge-watch past student films to amuse ourselves. We would skim past every film, make fun of the badly written dialogue, the awkward editing, performances, and whatnot. It’s such a pity all those efforts and thoughts that went into those films are now reduced to insubstantial trivial chit-chat and ridicule, and naturally, I was worried that one day my film would meet the same fate.

It is a fear that I think all filmmakers have experienced but refuse to acknowledge. It is the vacuum between us and the audiences, the vacuum where all our best intentions expire and decay. This existentialist theme is something that I’ve been exploring throughout my work, and A Stargazer’s Guide to Filmmaking is a comedic approach to this idea.
