Jpixx not only produced Filmily Fest this year, they created a short film (not in competition) under the same inspiraiton guidelines that Filmily filmmakers were required to follow. Double the fun!!
The ‘Art imitates life’ saying was true to form because “Carried Away” was inspired by true events. Over the summer, we had a bunch of gear stolen, and just a few days later the same thing happened to someone else who ended up following the culprits and leading the the police straight to them. We shot this comedic short film in the Neon District of Downtown Norfolk. Big shout out to the Downtown Norfolk Council for letting us play in the streets with no trouble 🙂
Check out these behind-the-scenes flicks we got on set below:.
Look at these two (Karla & Maria) striking a pretty gnarly pose on set. This needs to be framed!

When you have the best makeup artists handing off to each other (hey Shay and Victoria) this is what you get!
Matt, Cory and Maria share a laugh on set.

Olivia was sooo tired of eating ice cream at this point lol
Jon and Teviya discussing the next scene. Yes is was very very hot!
We started early in the morning and continued to shoot until the daylight ran out. We were racing against sunset.
It was extremely hot during the day and then became increasingly cold as the sun disappeared.

Boss lady keeping track of things
And of course some classic Jpixx inappropriate fun. It never fails to happen on set lol Don’t mind us!
