Alfons was only supposed to take care of his daughter Sophie's dog while she is on a business trip. But easier said than done, as her house turns out to be a high-tech smart home.
This short film (12 min.) was a semester project by the same team that made Mastercraft. Our intention was to create a film that addresses the generational conflict surrounding the adoption of modern technology. A humorous story about a conflict that we have certainly all encountered.
Once the storyboard and screenplay were finished, we started to prepare the production schedule. It took a lot of organizational effort to find a suitable location, actors, props, lighting and camera equipment, and a crew that could handle it all. In the end, we even had a professional music composer and a voice actor for our virtual assistant CLEO!
After months of preparation, the film was finally shot within four days. A lot of people helped us during the filming! Now we could finally start bringing everything together in Adobe Premiere. Minor adjustments were made in After Effects. The final audio mixing was done in the sound studio at our university using Pro Tools.
