This movie is Room 18's entry into the 2012 Manaiakalani Film Festival. Inspired by Tama Tu, a film written and directed by Taika Waititi in 2004, we set out to see what this concept (silent communication) could look like for us. After looking at several scenarios that were often related to necessary silence, we decided that we would like to fashion our script around a test. Prior to filming, we storyboarded the entire 1 minute, 32 second youtube clip of Tama Tu. 38 scenes later, we soon saw that this was a challenging project. It involved the entire class with everyone acting. We truly hope that you enjoy our efforts.
