About the project

With a truly awesome cast and crew we created The Dial for the Sci-Fi-London 48 hour challenge 2012.

At 11:30am on Saturday we were given a title, a list of props and some dialogue that had to feature in the film.

Title: The Dial
Prop: Print: We see a character thumb through a copy of Total Film, SFX or The Guardian – pause on a page and either tear it out or write over it with big marker pen.
Dialogue: It is a force our a power? They call it something…
Optional theme: A virus that kills language

By 1:00pm the following Monday we had delivered a finished film.
