Watch: Takeaway Scenes Presents '004 Motherfucker'Shorts Watch
Motherfucker is the fourth short of the Takeaway Scenes series where it is made by Anonymous, a group of anonymous people who must follow strict guidelines (listed here), one of them being that they all need to be shot in one take. I love the concept and the ego-less of the whole project as literally no cast & crew gets credited in this series. Adapted from the play, The Motherfucker With The Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis, Motherfucker follows a moment between lovers Veronica and Jackie after Jackie tells her that he got a job today. With most of these shorts, the story relies heavily on the actors as they have to carry the story on their shoulder but Veronica and Jackie succeeds effortlessly with their explosive energy and chemistry with one another. These Anonymous collaboration has the right idea about filmmaking that truly strips down the form to its bare bones that allows experimentation and story to be the main focus. I can't wait to see what they do next!
