Star Drunk: A Written Drunk, Shot Drunk, DSLR Short Film

By Anthony Thurston on September 1st 2013

Film making can be very stressful. Many actors and directors turn to drugs and alcohol to try and take the edge off a long and hard days’ work. But what happens when a team of drunk writers and actors get together to shoot a short film? Hilarity ensues, that is what.

Directors Chris Wilson and Zach Persson, fellow Oregonians, talked about the project in their description of the short film. “Star Drunk is an experiment in writing a short film while drunk; several writers from Portland got together one night to write the script. We promised each other that whatever we wrote that night, we’d produce as a short film. We ended up creating a Star Trek-Star Wars-Battlestar Galactica’esque parody with laser gun fights and space battles…”

Taking the concept a step further (and stranger), we asked our cast to be drunk on the night of filming.

I have to say this is one of the funniest short films I have seen in quite a while. Sure it is cheesy, but you have to admit it made you smile at least once. I must make a recommendation though, and that is do not Drink and Film. Working with drunk actors and actresses looks like more trouble than it’s worth. Check out the behind the scenes video below for proof and some more laughs.

    Thanks guys for the mention. I’m one of the actors in this little space opus. I don’t remember much while acting in it, but have been sure enjoying it since its release. It’s been fun to think of all the people laughing across the world on something that we figured might just be a train-wreck. Turns out we were right, which makes it that much more beautiful… I think.
