How to Shoot a Feature Film in 24 Hours with Ivan Malekin

Imagine shooting an entire feature film in 24 hours. How could you do something like that and not make it a bad stage play? Today’s guest was not only able to do that but made a damn good film in the process. Ivan Malekinand his partner Sarah Jayne directed the feature film Friends, Foes & Fireworks in just one night (24 hours). Here’s some info on the film.

An intimate New Year’s Eve reunion of five female friends in the independent acting scene becomes a test of relationships when old tensions spark, truths are told, and rivalries are reignited. Will the group make it through the night together or will their friendship fizzle out like an overzealous fireworks display?

Filmed in a single night, the craziest and most chaotic night of the year – NYE – and relying entirely on improvisation, Friends, Foes & Fireworks is an ambitious Australian drama exploring relationships, love, friendship and the truths we try and fail to keep to ourselves.

Ivan, Sarah and I develop a course on how they wrote, shot, edited and sold Friends, Foes, and Fireworks. The online course is called How to Shoot & Direct an Improvised Feature Film in 24 Hours. Since you are part of the IFH Tribe we are offering a HUGE discount for you guys. It’s regularly $174.99 but you get it for $17.99! This is a LIMITED TIME OFFER. Check out the trailer below:

We dive into what it took to make a film in 24 hours, did they use a script or scriptment? How many cameras? How many crews and much more. Get ready to be inspired and enjoy my conversation with Ivan Malekin.
