Project Synopsis

City Lights is a romantic comedy about a night time security guard in a London office tower who finds a unique way to gain the attention of a cleaner in an opposite tower - without having to talk to her.

Featured in many film festivals including the LA Shorts Fest, this nearly dialog free film will challenge editors to cut a whopping 31 scenes! While many of those scenes look simple because they contain only one or two camera setups, those scenes can be rearranged in so many ways that to re-edit this project is an ambitious challenge for any editor. To that point, City Lights was filmed over six days (a typical short is filmed in one or two), and includes tons of visual effect shots, and music montages to build.

The completed VFX used in the film are included. The difficulty of creating these effects for anything other than temp would be beyond the ability of most editors.
