Recently I took part in the 48 hour film project in Prague. If you haven’t heard about it before, it’s a competition in which teams only have forty-eight hours to write, storyboard, film, edit and produce a short film using a genre, line of dialogue, character, and a prop provided randomly by the festival organisers.
I wrote and acted in the short film that we have titled “Lifted”. Felipe Baez, a talented new director from Brazil, directed the short, and we were joined by twelve other film enthusiasts.
It was a lot of fun to be part of the project, and certainly a challenge to write a screenplay in such a short amount of time. I admit that the finished product is certainly rough, but I’m proud of what we created. Plus, we won an audience choice award for our screening group in the competition so I guess, at least some other people, feel the same way.
Watch it and see for yourself!
