The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which teams of aspiring filmmakers make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours.
In 2009, nearly 40,000 filmmakers made 3,000 films in 76 cities. This year, the project is even bigger, with filmmakers around the world taking the challenge to make a film in just 48 hours.
Well, you all know I love movies....I am the Flick Chick for goodness sake!
Wow. Crazy. Who knew?
Less than a month ago, I formed Team 1 A.M. Films for the 48 Hour Film Project Columbus 2010 with my FlickChick.TV partner Jason Blanton. We became the team leaders and I signed on to write & direct, Jason would executive produce & act as an assistant director as well.
We assembled a fabulous team of friends & colleagues who were as passionate and excited about this project as we were, and had the various skills to make it happen:
Lou Ann Racher - Writer/Actor, Louie Cowan - Assistant Director/Actor, Jay Brooks - Editor, Ken Moss - Cinematography/Composer, Kristie Madden - Writer/Script Supervisor, Caliph Scott - Actor, Elizabeth Cave - Actor, Chris Engebretson - Camera/PA and Jim Bowe - Production Assistant.
As a first-time writer/director/filmmaker, I must say...the result was a fun, inspiring, creative, tiring, educational, frustrating, hilarious, crazy weekend that I will NEVER forget....and a finished film that I will always be proud of.
