This is part of a series of posts from the filmmakers previewing the different films that will be screened at Portsmouth Short Film Night.
Submitted by cinematographer Chris Spencer, “The Guys Get Blindsided” is an impressive comedy episode for its quality of production. Writing, directing, acting, and photography are all of a high caliber. Here’s a little from Chris:
My name is Chris Spencer. I am a filmmaker living on the Seacoast. I am originally from a small town alongside the Connecticut River. I have lived in New Hampshire my entire life and it’s a large part of who I am as a person and the work that I do. I would consider myself a self-taught filmmaker who loves to be behind the lens and cutting the footage. I have a large interest in the democratization of film and how DSLR cameras have really pushed the envelope on quality and affordability.
Landscrapers is a web series created by John Cogliano and developed by a group of people spanning New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine. “The Guys Get Blindsided,” written by Jeremy Fiske, is the first episode in the series. It follows three landscapers who become motivated by a young inner city basketball player, and scheme up a ludicrous way to try and make money. Directed by Andrew Gibson and Charlie Harrington, the episode was shot on a Canon 60D down in South Boston.
Come to Portsmouth Short Film Night on Sunday, February 24 at 7:30pm in 3S Artspace’s Store Gallery in Portsmouth, NH to see this and the other great short films being screened!
