(You Can Run But) You Can't Hide

A secret agent's cover has been blown and he must run for his life, but when he tries to hide a missile kills him.

I had an assignment to make a “mood piece,” but I saw the opportunity to instead turn this into a chase sequence (using “fear” as the mood). My project partner and I filmed it in a couple hours with a hallmate (who graciously took time away from a paper he needed to write) as the action star. The music I decided to add after I finished editing the video; I arranged it myself with music looping software.

Ultimately I'm a little disappointed with this film. I was making it up as we went along and we were in a hurry to get it done and unfortunately both of these aspects show in the finished product. It was, however, a fun experiment figuring out how to make a one-man chase sequence.
