Abstract/Artist Statement

Countdown is a sketch comedy film that follows the humorous attempts of Stacy and Ben as they prepare for an unexpected Beyonce concert in a limited amount of time. Stacy and Ben run into a multitude of complications on their way. They need to first come up with the money for the ticket, and then struggle to create their best look for the concert, outfit and everything. The two friends argue about getting everything perfect, and stress about the details. The often selfdeprecating, dry humor is echoed through the characters as they realize that they have to work together and think outside the box to get everything done in time. In the end, Stacy and Ben realize that the logistics of the concert don’t matter as much as the other person who they’re going with. Their friendship is restored, as the Queen Bey would want it.
