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.
