Abstract

Love, ambition, and deceit are three words describing the Pit of Greed. Pit of Greed is a film noir about the lovely Margo Blanche, a chauffeur of the long sought crime lord, Bud. Dale Drummond thinks he finally caught the missing piece connecting Bud to the crimes. Only, he discovers Mrs. Blanche has been the crime lord the whole time and Bud has played the pawn. Pit of Greed was created by the very stellar Central Washington University Motion Picture Club consisting of extremely motivated and passionate filmmakers. We put this film together for the film and video studies 48hr Film Slam competition. We were give only 48 hours to put a film together consisting of writing, casting, filming, and editing. With such a short time span, there were many issues ranging from equipment failure to cranky individuals. But the most devastating issue of the whole project was the audio. The audio in Pit of Greed had been neglected and needed to be fixed. It took many hours dedicated to post-production to fully clean up the audio. Even under such a tight deadline, the film was finished and went on to win best directing. You can see the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlEb5k3XKzA. Eric Durkopp directed this film short.
