Producers Guild of America Film challenge short - On Set Picture

Summer Glau played in a (short) movie, produced by German Michael Torres, Rick Telles, and John Estrada and directed by Jay Torres, made for the 2nd Annual Producers Guild Weekend Shorts Contest , that took place September 28-30, 2012; the challenge was to make a film – write, shoot and edit it – in two days.

Summer Glau stars in it alongside two other actors; the movie, which will only be 3-5 minutes in length, should be viewable in November, shortly after the winners will be posted online at PGA Weekend Shorts Contest, starting November 8, 2012 (Thanks to Tall See Productions, on-set EPK photographer, for the additional informations).
UPDATE: The short is now available online. Watch Summer Glau and Eric Winter in "Dead End"!
3N Films, who served as assistant director, released a picture of Summer Glau on set (in post-production) :

Oh wow this is great. I sure do love myself a good indie short. I love good film in general, it's just the genuinely and integrity of videos made by a small startup team always hits a soft spot with me.

Nope, 3 to 5 minutes at most.
What can you expect when you have TWO DAYS to "write, shoot and edit" a movie?

I've added a few trivia in the dedicated thread in the forum.

The goal of this contest is to give undiscovered producers a chance to show the Producers Guild what they're made of; it's not so much about the actors.

This contest is terrific for a small production company trying to become known.

How long will this short movie be? Like 40 minutes to an hour at most?
