48 HOUR FILM PROJECT
48 hours. That's it.
For four years, I've competed in The 48 Hour Film Project in which you have 48 hours to concept, write, shoot, and edit a short film. At the beginning of the 48 hours, you're given a genre, prop, character, and line of dialogue to incorporate in the film. From there, it's off to the races. The weekend is packed with creativity and completely devoid of sleep.
The last four years, I've had the pleasure of writing and directing our films. With the help of some of the raddest people I know, we've been lucky enough to take home some high honors like Best Film, Best Writing, Best Directing, Best Acting, and Audience Favorite.
