This is the Death To Prom proof-of-concept / teaser video (aka Sizzle Reel).
The team put this short together in the summer and fall of 2011 to start the production and fundraising rolling. We shot these scenes at various Twin Cities locations over five sweltering hot days in late summer 2011 and used the results to start building awareness and get fiscal sponsorship through IFP. In spring of 2012 we used it in our successful kickstarter campaign.
You will notice the two male leads are different than the final production. Ah, the joys of juggling schedules and recasting! It happens on projects of all sizes and budgets. We were still thrilled to work with Tom and Ricardo (thanks, guys!).
