LOGLINE: One man’s lazy day of cell phone chitchat is interrupted by a murderous shakedown that leads to a frantic chase as two corrupt undercover cops hunt him down.
As he yaks on his cell about everything from stocks to relationships to illegal activity, Noel decides to take a short cut through an alleyway on his way to a job interview. He stumbles upon a group of men, two undercover drug agents and a third man lying defeated on the ground.
After recovering a bag full of white powder, one of the cops shoots and kills the suspect. Noel is an unfortunate witness to all of this, and decides to get out of Dodge. But the narcs hear him scuttle away and give chase, hoping to quell the threat he poses as a witness.
Sprinting down busy city streets and multiple flights of stairs and hiding in parking garages, Noel finally gets away from the two men. Alone on the roof of a building, Noel is exhausted, confused, and worried. Then, a gunshot cracks through the air.
Behind the Scenes
Shot on location in downtown Columbus, and we got removed from the parking garage. We went through 3 break away glasses, and everyone really enjoyed hitting wedding videographer Dan "ROCK" Peterson over the head. Used a Canon Optura Mini DV camcorder, and edited on Adobe Premeire 5.1 for inclusion with the BACK OFFICE series, now a stand alone piece. Shot in March of 2000. Re-edited from scratch in Nov 2003, the QUARRY takes on a new dimension of picture and sound quality, re-added to Sonnyboo.com in Dec 2003.
