All In: With Sally Satfield














“All In: With Sally Satfield” is the story of 10 strangers that are brought together by a strange and mysterious invitation. Each of the teens arrive under the assumption that they are part of a dance contest. We soon meet our over-enthusiastic host, Sally Satfield and her silent side-kick Harold Hark, and we discover that when you lose in this competition, you lose more then just a chance at the winning prize.




Note from the director

“I come from an acting background, and I find whenever I am working on a project it takes me a week to get through the trial period of where you are becoming comfortable with your creative collaborators, and they with you. What made this shoot so interesting is that we only had two weeks to develop and shoot the whole thing! Which means we had to warm up to each other fast! Think of it kind of like speed dating for film makers! But I think this accelerated way to make film really forced everyone to be on our A-game man, I mean we were literally shooting 12 to 14 hours straight – pizza and soda between takes and right back to it! It made it such an incredible experience and it was so cool for me to watch their development, since for of most them it was the first time they had ever been on camera! By the end I think we all felt like we had just finished a mini marathon… and I feel that our hard work, dedication, blood, sweat and pizza sauce stains really show on camera!”
