Over the past few months, the Tuesday film and music class have been hard at work writing the script, working on acting lessons, and filming The Good, The Bad and The Sleepy, but Tuesday classes have not been the only students hard at work.  During art classes, the students have been creating props for the movie set including a miniature western town and saloon doors that are frequently entered throughout the film.  The basis for the movie is this:

During a time of coffee prohibition in the town of Sleepy Creek, the “Bad Brew Crew” will do just about anything to get a cup of joe. The crew is led by the determined “Sarsaparilla Kid,” who has never even tasted a drop of coffee. Together they plot to kidnap the town’s sweetheart, Penelope, to lure the Sheriff out of Moonbucks, where a local barista has hidden a secret stash of java. Filled with adventure, romance, and a little bit of dancing, this silent film is sure to make you smile.

Here are a few screenshots from our short film The Good The Bad and The Sleepy.

How can it be a classic silent western without somebody getting tied to the railroad?

In case you didn’t notice from the photo, Neal’s character is pretty tough.
