Loves Martha

Five days to film, five days to edit, and only five hours of tape, to create a 10 minute narrative film. That was the challenge given to the three directors chosen to participate in one of the most highly anticipated events of the Seattle Film Festival, the Fly Filmmaking Challenge, and directors Sue Corcoran, Thom Harp, and TJ Martin ably rose to the task, while filmmaker Andy McAllister orchestrated a "making of" documentary about the event.

In addition to the time constraints, the directors were given a short list of "flies in the ointment" - things they had to each include in their films: a copy of Seattle alterna-paper The Stranger or The Stranger logo, a person tripping, and the Seattle Public Library. In addition, each director had to include the same SAG actress in their film, with at least one line.
