Wednesday follows Trevor, a man desperate to find his car keys.
The film was shot over the course of one day in Boise, for the cost of a couple of gas station hot dogs.
Wednesday capped off its festival run at the 2021 edition of Filmfort. After premiering at the Colossal Cinematic Showcase in 2020, it also won the Spirit of Indie Filmmaking Award at the 2020 Twin Falls SANDWICHES Film Festival, and also screened at KinoFest 2021.
Danny and Collin had only known each other for a few months before they made this film, but you know what they say, it’s the quality of the time spent, not the quantity. So keep that in mind when you picture (literally) the second time they ever hung out: a drive from Boise, ID to Reno, NV and back. That’s 14 hours in a car for those keeping score at home. Suffice to say they knew each other pretty well by the end of that little jaunt.
The why of that trip is a story for another day, but the what is that Collin and Danny found that they both shared a desire to stop making excuses, and just make some damn movies.
So in early February of 2020, they picked a day, reached out to some actor friends, started batting around story ideas, and settled on one that they thought would be fun.
Then, on the day of, for one reason or another, none of the actor friends were able to help out anymore. So, they started from scratch, just the two of them, and by 4pm that day, they had shot, Wednesday.
