Spring and Summer 2016
Connor comes back to Westport and begins preproduction for An Inconsistent Story in Stealing, while also teaching a filmmaking class to kids at the Westport Library.
Connor in India and Nepal, Carson about to graduate college. A little unsure of what to do, they remember some of the most fun they can remember having was filming Ryan Hood. They decide to do it again.
Ryan Hood screens in a small theater in Toquet Hall, a local teen center that features prominently in the film. (this after an all-nighter of editing, color grading, and special effects)
Tired of the limiting feelings of the film programs at their respective schools, Carson and Connor set out to film a 60 minute film in 6 days, using actors from their high school and people they know around town. It cost about $60 (some police vests they couldn’t return and ingredients for a “thank you” cake for the cast and crew). This is Ryan Hood.
