  • Behind the Scenes

    Getting the shot.
    Cinematographer Matt Soriano gets crammed in some pretty tight spaces to get the angle he needs - like behind a desk in the make-shift audio booth from Spilled Milk.

    It starts with an idea.
    It actually starts with many ideas. Before Team Midas even gets to a script, they start tossing around ideas for the story, paying special attention to how to incorporate the provided genre, prop, character, and line of dialogue. Here they work out the details of the "ghost movie" genre that ultimately became Clean Death.

    Let's make music together.
    Music often makes the movie, and making music in 48 hours is often an adventure. Team Midas has been lucky to have had many talented musicians lend their craft to the process over the years, but on Two Coins, non-musically versed director Mike Wickham actually whistled the tune for the short's theme. Then it was up to Robby Gonyo and Matt Del Greco to build the piece around the tune that was sketched out on a notepad (using no music notes at all).

    Day for night.
    For the night driving scenes in Shifting Gears the team had to get creative for both shooting the car in motion and the darkness. Given the limited schedule, they couldn't wait for nightfall, so they pulled the car indoors, then moved lights on poles to simulate passing streetlights and headlights.

    Quick turn-around.
    Team Midas actors (like Jenny Stodd, seen here in Spilled Milk) have very little time to prepare for their parts, since the script is written just hours before everyone reports to the first shoot on Saturday morning.

    The scene board.
    As the group creates the story on Friday night, the scenes are sketched out and tacked up on a bulletin board. This gives everyone a better concept of the big picture and keeps track of what's been shot. Here, Mike Wickham catches Robert Keller up to speed on his first Team Midas project, Stacked Deck.

    Wearing different hats.
    When assembling a group of artists to volunteer their weekend to make a movie, it is important to find multi-talented individuals. Like actors who can do makeup (seen here Kathryn Czynski) and directors of photography who don't mind getting on the other side of the camera - like Matt Soriano, who played the homeless Gustav Slavinski in Decision 2006.

    Campaign HQ.
    Spilled Milk had one of the more complicated sets Team Midas has ever built to serve as the headquarters of a political campaign. The upper room of the Valhalla Ambulance Corps had to be arranged and decorated to accomodate shooting the seven actors from all angles.

    New camera - new possibilies.
    No Good Deed was the first Team Midas short to be shot in HD and the smaller DSLR camera opened up more angle options - like a handle bar view of Stephen Hensel.

    Composer at work.
    Robert A. K. Gonyo uses Apple's Garage Band to compose the music for Two Coins.

    The little things.
    Team Midas has always prided itself in its attention to detail, especially in creating props and set pieces for its shorts. Access to the full print shop at Tremont Offset and having a graphic artist on hand is also helpful, as Rob Del Greco demonstrates while creating "Mom's Fortune Cookie" lables for Working Magic.

    A rare luxury.
    Given the time constraints of a 48 hour film competition, rehearsal time is something that needs to be crammed in when it can. Here on the set of Stacked Deck, Ken Jubie, Robert Keller, and Todd Meredith go over lines while the set is built around them (note how the beer bottles haven't been affixed with their "Mom's" labels yet).

    Big budget costume.
    When Team Midas was given the opportunity to compete in the Visa "Life Takes" Challenge, they were also given a $500 gift card for the production of Two Coins. Much of that money went to building the costume for "Death" (played by Robert Keller), a multi-layered outfit being assembled here by Kathryn Czynski and inspired by the "Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come" from The Muppet Christmas Carol.

    Confined spaces.
    Space is often at a premium on a Team Midas set, as the group has to work with what they've got and minimze travel time. This room of Tremont Offset in the Bronx has been used for many scenes and in Working Magic it pulled double duty. For the opening mall office scene, the same wall was used behind both actors. After one angle was shot, the desk was turned around and the room redecorated to seem like the opposite side of the office.

    Rough Cut.
    In a typical weekend, writing takes place on Friday night, the movie is shot during the day on Saturday, and editing is done Saturday night and all day on Sunday. Here, the cast and crew of Beach House gather around to see an early edit of the short.

    Silent Score.
    For the silent film, It's All Mime!, the music became crucial to help drive the storytelling. Rachel Maloney's background in music composition was invaluable as she scored the film in just a few hours on Sunday of the competition.

    Comedy (8 minutes) 2006
    Welcome to the hidden and hapless hamlet of Filmore, birthplace of hard throwing hurlers and learned lumberjacks. But of all the shooting stars who have ever risen from these humble beginnings, none have shot so high, or fallen as far, as Bobbie Soxer. Now the downtrodden grown up child actor is entering politics, boldly taking on the latest in a long line of town golden boys. In a village with this many characters, it's a story that can only unfold in Filmore.
    Produced for the 2006 National Film Challenge.

    Where it all began.
    When Rob Del Greco and Mike Wickham gathered together their group of filmmaking friends and founded Team Midas, they had no idea the success the team would achieve on their very first venture. Shot in the upstate New York town of Voorheesville, Decision 2006 propelled the team into the national spotlight. Finishing in the top fifteen of over 200 films, Decision 2006 was awarded best use of the line "If it doesn't work, give it a shake" at the 2007 Filmapalooza in Albuquerque, NM.

    The Big City
    For its second film, Team Midas moved production to New York City and the Midas Touch Media headquarters in the Bronx, the site for their next eight films. The challenge: shoot a western genre film in The Big Apple. Bending traditional conventions, the team came up with a modern tale that pays homage to the theme in both story and execution. The film's distinctive style, a collaboration of director Mike Wickham and cinematographer Matt Soriano, received praise in the competition for both cinematography and editing. The group also welcomed additional cast and crew from the New York area, expanding both their on-screen talent and behind the scenes abilities.

    Riding high
    Stacked Deck's Top 10 finish in the 2007 NYC 48HFP earned Team Midas a bid in the Visa "Life Takes" Invitational, along with twenty other teams from San Francisco and Los Angeles. Their submission, Two Coins, showcased producer Rob Del Greco's networking abilities when on Friday night he secured a coffin and a funeral home for Saturday morning's shoot. The production also marked the group's first collaboration with veteran actor Phil V. Donahue. Del Greco and Wickham traveled out to San Francisco for the short's viewing and to accept the team's first place honors.

    Visa retains the rights to the film Two Coins and does not allow its distribution, therefore it is not featured in this site.

    Produced for the 2007 National Film Challenge

    Cookies of fortune
    Team Midas's third film in five months, Working Magic, was also Team Midas's second submission to the National Film Challenge. The team challenged themselves with new filmmaking techniques and styles and an ambitious lineup of special effect shots for a forty-eight hour production. Despite that, the short was the team's first not to achieve top status in a competition.

    Produced for the 2008 NYC 48 Hour Film Challenge

    Back in the race
    Team Midas returned to its political roots with Spilled Milk. Continuing to stretch their creative limits, the film featured their largest cast and was shot in an edgy, voyeuristic style that departed from previous conventions. The ambitious project came in three minutes over the competition's time limit, so large portions of the short had to be cut for submission. The version included here has been extended with those edited scenes returned.

    Meet the Zuckermans
    When presented with the romance genre for the 2008 National Film Challenge, Team Midas decided to take their chances with a wild card category. The result - holiday film. The group came up with the comedic scenario of Santa Claus's visit to a Jewish family. Del Greco and Wickham also needed to wear some different hats when additional music was required. The two mixed "Jingle Bells" with "The Dreidel Song" and discovered an interesting and unique tune for the closing credits.

    Against the clock
    The not-so-lucky seventh film in the Team Midas repertoire almost wasn't made. Faced with scheduling problems preventing regular director, Mike Wickham, and the group's cinematographer, Matt Soriano, from being a part of the production of Clean Death, Rob Del Greco slid into the director's chair for this quirky comedy. The film's technical requirements, in addition to the short-handed staff, caused the team's first ever late submission to a competition, finishing just a half-hour past the deadline.

    Who needs a script?
    When Team Midas was assigned the mockumentary genre for a second time, they decided to give themselves an added challenge - improvise all the dialogue for the short. The crew came up with an outline for the story, then shot the scenes and interviews with the actors in character and two cameras rolling on everything. The hardest part of the editing process was getting a cut that fit the eight minute time limit and deciding what great moments the actors created had be to taken out. The team's normal attention to detail in setting the scene paid off, winning an award for their use of the assigned prop - a book of matches.

    The thirteenth film by Team Midas marked their first in high definition, as the group used a DSLR to shoot the short. The smaller camera allowed them to get some new angles, while the lenses and video quality returned stunning images. Since the genre was horror, long-time team member Ken Jubie came through with a location they had wanted to use for years: his uncle's haunted farm attraction, The Headless Horseman in Kingston, NY. That meant travelling an hour from Albany, where some scenes were to be shot and editing was to take place, to the location for the rest of the scenes. It was a gamble that paid off for the incredible setting.

    Built for two.
    For the fourteenth short by Team Midas, the team came up with an idea that hinged on securing a tandem bicycle for the production. Requests went out across social media, asking friends the odd request for a two-person bike on short notice. Just when the group was resigned to renting one at Central Park for the afternoon - a long way away from Valhalla where the rest of the scenes were to be shot - an old college friend, Jeff Schupp, who had one in his garage nearby. In addition to having bicycles, this project was also bicoastal, as charter team members Mike Wickham and Stephen Hensel contributed a short tv show for the background of a scene from their new home in Los Angeles.

    With Team Midas's first entry into the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project, the competitive filmmaking group now officially had a presence in three cities and both coasts, with plans to continue entering the New York 48NFC and the National Film Challenge from Albany, NY. The team drew Silent Film for the first time in a competition and set out to create short that had the traditional look and feel of silent-era movies. For that, they leaned heavily on newcomer Rachel Maloney to create a musical score that complemented the visual narrative. Her efforts were rewarded, as the film took home an audience award, making a big splash in a new city.
