A little about the project.

A light bulb moment is a comedic short film taking place in a main hallway of a shared apartment between Donna, Mason, Melanie & Phil. It is a normal night until the light bulb of the apartment blows out. And a bet between neighbours begins. Donna & Mason first come across the broken light bulb and make a bet due to Mason thinking it’s a man’s job so he can easily win over this bet. Due to a previous bet from a game of UNO between the boys and girls of the apartment Donna is not only determined to win but shows Mason that a girl can do anything a man can do. After the bet has been made Donna & Mason inform their friends who also live in the shared house (Melanie & Phil). Donna ups the stakes by replacing Mason’s ladder with a bucket (that has a layer of glue on top) only landing Mason the chance to embarrass himself by falling and injuring himself. Donna then leaps at the opportunity of winning as the boys leave, she attempts to fix the bulb herself, after doing so she gets electrocuted when placing the bulb in. Soon after her friend Melanie tries to fix the bulb in place of Donna. Until an unexpected visitor rings the doorbell. Everyone expecting each other to have cheated by calling an electrician soon realise it is no electrician but a little girl scout who is selling cookies. The girl scout is called Lu, and as she makes her way down the hallway to go to the bathroom, Lu finds herself a shiny lightbulb as she looks up, she can see what is missing and ultimately being a helpful girl scout that she places the bulb back in place. The boys (Phil & Mason) left in shock have no choice but to face their punishment of dressing as girls for the next 24 hours having lost the bet.
