SA crew makes the quickest film

2013-05-16 00:00

A JOHANNESBURG film crew has shot a movie in less than 11 days, breaking the Guinness world record for the shortest time to make a full-length picture.

Tiffany Jones-Barbuzano, one of the producers of Shotgun Garfunkel, said pre-production began on May 1. The completed film was shown in Johannesburg on the evening of Saturday, May 11.

Jones-Barbuzano and a group of friends wanted to make “the worst film ever, but that’s been done to death”.

An Indian movie Sivappu Ma­zhai holds the record for the shortest shoot, at 11 days and 23 hours.

“We decided we could make a film in a shorter time,” she said.

Jones-Barbuzano, Asher Stolz, Bryan van Niekerk, Meren Reddy and Eduan van Jaarsveld are the producers, writers and actors. Jones-Barbuzano’s husband, Johnny Barbuzano, directed the film.

Starting at 9 am on May 1, they wrote the script in three days, shot the film in four days and edited it in the remaining time.

The comedy is about a group of friends who try, with mixed success, to recreate the best nights of their lives.
