Film shot in Leavesden Country Park to be screened in Prince Charles Theatre in Leicester Square, London
Justin Hyne recruited a team of 17 volunteers, which included a writer, a composer, and actors and editors.
A film set in Leavesden Country Park was entirely written, shot and edited in 48 hours and will be shown on a theatre screen in London.
Justin Hyne, whose main business is in the home cinema industry, gathered a group of volunteers to create the short film, which has been entered into the international 48 Hour Film Project.
Filming took place in Leavesden Park and Abbots Langley at the weekend.
Mr Hyne said: "It was really good. The weather held out for us and everyone was phenomenal and really pulled together, even when people were tired. There was such a good sense of morale and I got loads of good feedback from everyone involved afterwards. It was not stressful day at all in actual fact."
The 37-year-old recruited a team of 17 volunteers, which included a writer, a composer, and actors and editors.
The producer chose Leavesden Park and the Abbots Langley area as his desired film location after a friend and resident of the village showed him photographs of the area. He said it looked "really nice" and it would be "good to do some filming there".
Last Friday, 60 film-making teams gathered in the Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square and were presented with a genre, a character, a prop and a line of dialogue. Mr Hyne’s team were given horror as a genre and all teams were told to include a character called Oliver Ball, a cushion and the line "there’s nothing to it" in the short film.
The team worked "tirelessly" for 48 hours, doing the majority of the writing on the Friday and filming on the Saturday.
Mr Hyne said: "Some teams don’t use much dialogue but we ended up with eight pages of it. It was a very short space of time for the actors to learn their lines."
The final film was handed in at 6.58am, two minutes before their deadline. Mr Hyne said: "We were cutting it a bit fine. I'm really proud of the final result, but I'm most proud of the people that were involved."
Mr Hyne, from north London, owns a Film Production Company called HyneSight Productions. He founded his film production company in June 2013 in an attempt to "showcase talent from the UK".
He said: "I have got time for anyone who turns up on time and is enthusiastic."
Mr Hyne’s film will be shown on the big screen at the Prince Charles Theatre in Leicester Square, London, on October 5.
