Shades of Assumption: Director’s Cut

An insecure girlfriend follows her significant other, and mistakenly sees the unspeakable. Filmed in less than 12 hours, Shades of Assumption was created as an entry in the Buffalo 48 Hour Film Festival in June 2013. This edition features the original cut, with slightly altered visuals and coloring for release online. Strap in as Courtney Janicki takes you on a ride that had the audience roaring at its screening, in the best film the Hate This Team has put together thus far: Shades of Assumption.
