Three men are in a car on their way to get pizza. While one man goes to the washroom, the other two have a heated argument about whether it's okay to order a salad at a pizza place.

Behind the Scenes
Evan A. Schacht
For the creation of the short film 'Pizza Salad', I used; 2 DSLR cameras, a Rode VideoMic, a Zoom H1, my girlfriend's dad's truck, my three friends as actors, my friend's brother as a cinematographer and my girlfriend as a videoagrapher for the behind the scenes. The filming took us about 3 hours, and we had a blast doing it. We used a singular location, which was an empty parking lot near my home. We originally were going to shoot the entire scene in a one take, to create an interesting technique. Sadly though, these actors are only my friends and don't have the skill to memorize 5 pages of dialogue. We instead chose two shots, one from each side of the car. This worked effectively, and the sound worked even better due to this.
