48 Hr. Film Project San Diego
We've just moved to a new place today and the internet is kind of janky, so it'll be a short post. Some interesting news today from the 48 Hour Film Project. San Diego will be one of the cities hosting the competition in August. The 48 hr. Film Project is a competition where entrants are given a genre, character, prop and line of dialogue, then have 48 hours to write, shoot, edit, and score the movie. The best film in the city competition moves onto the global contest and a chance to be screened at Cannes. Its a fun idea and a great teaching lesson for filmmakers to think outside the box in a time crunch. We're planning to do it this year and are excited to see how imaginative we can get under such intense pressure. That's about it for tonight. Cross your fingers, take a shot of Bourbon and prepare yourself for the Mongolian battlefield that is Monday.
