C#CKFIGHT

3 females and 50+ males. Yup, that was the scene of the set of C#CKFIGHT. After 12 hours of a testosterone infused environment, I was sure able to capture some interesting moments from the making of Julian Yuri Rodriguez’s short film, C#CKFIGHT.

When filmakers Giancarlo Loffredo and Julian Yuri Rodriguez  reached out to me about shooting behind the scenes for a new short film, I was excited. Knowing Julian, and learning about the treatment (written by him and Ariel Castro), I  knew this wouldn’t be your average movie set. Commissioned by Borscht Film Festival and filmed on location in Miami, C#CKFIGHT was a sketchy movie set, to say the least. With shirtless Cuban men, broken beer bottles and “bath salts” surfacing the venue, I was sure to dress appropriately.

The first cut of the film premiered at The Borscht Film Festival on December 15th. It was amazing to see the film on the big screen, as I had specifically decided that I wouldn’t see it during the editing phases. Uncomfortable, suspenseful and shocking…… I suggest you keep a lookout for other chances to see a screening of C#CKFIGHT. Until then, you can see a teaser of the film, here.

If anyone who participated on set would like photos, please e-mail me, Jenny, at ShaynaBatya@gmail.com.
