This was a tough year for me for the 48 Hour Film Project. New city, new team, new actors. And to top it all off, I picked the genre horror. Not my favorite. I think we had a good story that was a little too complicated to tell properly in the time allotted. And I had to change some things during filming.
Also, my camera stopped working after about 3 hours of shooting. My theory is that a bug crawled into the tape transport (I’d been flicking them off the camera all morning). That little disaster caused an early lunch while I went home to regroup. Thankfully, a tape cleaning cassette and a little shaking did the trick and we were back on track by the afternoon.
Overall, it was as good a weekend as any. I felt a bit brain dead during the process and I don’t feel like I brought my ‘A’ game, but I had a great team and everyone worked really hard. Enjoy!
I’m updating my blog with something old (or maybe new to you) because Jared keeps falling asleep when I want to record a new movie review. (We’ve had some very interesting movie experiences lately). At any rate, with the wedding last year, and living in Norfolk this year, I haven’t done the 48 Hour Film Project in 2 years. I’m hoping to either have a team or at least join a team for the Virginia Beach version, which should be later this summer. Provided, of course, I can round up/meet anyone interested down here. For nostalgia’s sake, here is my last 48 Hour Film (from 2007), for your enjoyment.
Our late night post film wrap ups continue with two of the summer’s latest blockbusters. Summary: skip the mutants, but Star Trek is a must see.
