News: How To Make A Film In 5 Days

There's a really interesting article over at Screenrush about a movement called the Five Day Feature Project:

How To Make A Film In 5 Days

From the website: "Le Donk & Scor-Zay-Zee is an improvised, comedic rock mockumentary that was filmed by director Shane Meadows for Warp Films as part of their 5 Day Feature project. The idea is fairly simple - you have just five days in which to shoot a film - and Meadows and Mark Herbert, who created the 5 Day Feature movement, are hoping that Le Donk & Scor-Zay-Zee (see the trailer below) will be the first of a series of guerilla film projects that will act as an example and inspiration to amateur and experienced filmmakers alike to pick up a camera and start shooting whatever takes their fancy. But what do you need to make a successful five-day feature? It's time to look to the masters for some hard-earned words of wisdom..."

At the website, is a series of seven steps they took to make the film. You can check out the trailer for Le Donk & Scor-Zay-Zee below.
