Defenestration; tossing someone from a window, in order to do bodily harm.
"The Third Defenestration" is an attempt at compressing the film noir genre into a seven minute short. The story revolves around the gangster Humphrey Hawks, his assassination of the mafia boss Michael Santino and the aftermath, when Michael's brother Fredo seeks to avenge his fallen brother. Humphrey's girl Lauren Hayworth is present throughout the film, leaving the audience to wonder where her allegiance really lies...
The cast, in order of appearance:
R. Scott Williams as Humphrey Hawks Jared Doreck as Tommy Jones Lily Chu as Lauren Hayworth Reza A. Khan as Jirî Ricardo P. Silva as Pavel Pavol Greco as Honza and Curtis Matthew as Fredo Santino
The breath taking defenestration stunt was performed by Reza A. Khan.
"The Third Defenestration" was made at the end of a four week Summer course at Prague Film School. The film was Jørgen Egner Granerud's project, and it was written, directed and edited by him. His crew was comprised of the following fellow students: Stephanie Surach, assistant director. Lukas Dolgner, cinematographer. Gabriel Calderwood, gaffer. Duarte Lima, sound.
A special thanks goes to Prague Film School staff members Isaac Trujillo and Steve Reverand, for their help with lights and additional sound effects.
