Made for the San Jose 3 Day Film Challenge: Horror Edition, After Dinner Life was initially conceived to be a straight thriller ghost story. It was, after all, a horror competition. During the writing process, my writing partner, Kevin Miller, and I decided with our existing resources that a comedy would be better suited for this project. So, After Dinner Life was created.
The film was made in just three days, with the specific requirement that we make a ghost story.
