About this event

In July of 2022, four teams of filmmakers collaborated to make something. Each team was given forty eight hours to create one quarter of a film, but with a hitch:

Nobody knew what the other teams had made.

SJPS presents The Exquisite Corpse, an experiment in creativity, collaboration, and constrained writing. Extending from the art and poetry tradition, all four film teams were given only a tiny glimpse at the section of movie that came before them, and then set about writing a script, shooting, and editing the next piece, only for the process to repeat again. Some teams were composed of members who'd never even met each other before, others were friends who'd known each other for years, and nobody had any idea what they were in for.

The result is a rollercoaster ride, twenty minutes of style, humor, and general silliness!
