Commander Badass – 48 Hour – Short Film

June 23, 2011 — Leave a comment

This was my entry for the Baltimore 48 Hour Film Festival 2011. “Commander Baddass” is the greatest action short film you can never see. Try as you may, your mind cannot withstand the sheer awesomeness of ‘Commander Badass’. Attempting to watch the movie is futile. You have been warned.

Watch the film!

**Audio is a MUST for ‘watching’ this movie. Make sure you have speakers or headphones.

The entire premise actually derived from the idea of making fun of the 48 hour. What if we said screw the general practices and, instead, we threw in all the elements (the the character, the prop, line of dialogue) in right at the very end of the movie. We could be free to do whatever we wanted. We could even shrug off the genre in a make shift fashion and be complete unto ourselves.

No, nothing is wrong with your computer. The ‘video’ is exactly how its supposed to be. Enjoy it!

Directed by yours truly, Jacob ‘Boom Shadow’ Tirey

A linux web hosting administrator, a professional production sound man, and a renegade cop without nothing left to lose.... Ok, that last part is made up. In all seriousness, my passion in life is to help people; whether that be with help running their sites or with their productions. The name 'Boom Shadow' was given to me by a great group of filmmakers called Star Wipe Films. back in 2005 and has been with me since. I hope my site is helpful to you, and if there's something you need, drop me a line!
