THe 48 Hour Film Project is a global event which takes place every year. It is a competition for groups to write, shoot, edit and complete a short film in 48 hours. Every team is given the same prop, line of dialogue and character name and the genres are drawn at random so you never know what you are going to get.
I have been involved with three of these so far with varying degrees of sucess. However, each one was a never-to-be-forgotten experience. Be sure to check out the three different films, but bear in mind these were completed in 48 hours!
