Director's Comments

Created in 24 hours for THAC XVI. A man gets stranded in the desert, and with the light fading fast, he must attempt to find a fix for his truck.

This is my first film at 12fps. I wanted to use THAC to get some practice at 12, so the attention went into the animation primarily. I really couldn't come up with a better ending, but this one made me laugh, at least.

This is also my first film with a DSLR and Dragonframe. As is typical for THAC, I began to experience technical difficulties, and the camera stopped talking to the computer when it came time to film the last shot. For this reason, I had to go back to the C920 for just one shot. Now that is THAC for you. Also big thanks to rioforce and thistof, who saved me from what was seeming to be a game-ending Vegas problem.
