Registration for the St. Louis 48 Hour Film Project is now open. The 48HFP is a fun timed filmmaking competition where filmmakers from around St. Louis will have just 48 hours to write, shoot, produce, and edit a short film which will screen at the Tivoli Theatre.
This June I participated in my first 48 Hour Film Project. I had no idea what to expect, but I assumed it would be a horrifying mix of stress and fun. I was right.
Friday, June 1, 8 p.m. I'm looking at the time on my computer. It's exactly 8 p.m. and most of us have arrived at our destination: our teammate James' parents' basement.
My best friend, Mary Davis and I produced a 48 Hour Film Project this year. We have a group of 14 people who helped us.
Friday, June 1 5:46 p.m. Arrived at the Webster University auditorium, and about 60% of the seats were filled. Very anxious to see which genre will get picked this year.
7 p.m. on June 1, 2012. The "Hand Llama Productions" group is crammed into an apartment in Mascoutah, Ill., waiting anxiously to hear from our representative.
During the weeks leading up to the St. Louis 48 Hour Film Project I was filled with excitement, but as the time grew nearer I started to panic some being a first-time filmmaker and all, but it turned out to be a fantastic experience.
48 Hour Film Project (48HFP) returns to St. Louis June 1-3, 2012. The 48HFP is a wild event where teams of filmmakers from around St. Louis will spend just 48 hours writing, shooting, editing and scoring short fiction films in a race against the clock. Registration begins April 3.
Squeaky cleaning in song, wild west stare downs, vengeful vacuums, noisy neighbors and more; the films in this year's 48 Hour Film Project prove yet again the amount of skill, talent and fun St. Louis filmmakers have to offer. The top 15 films from the wild weekend screened in front of a sold out crowd at the Tivoli theatre on Thursday, June 16.
It's hour 13 of the 48 Hour Film Project, but I've only been awake for one of those. I'm standing in front of First Punch Film Production at 6 a.m. on a Saturday and reminding myself to quit bitching about being conscious at this hour. I'm here to meet Team Salutations, every member of which is undoubtedly more sleep-deprived than I am.
