48 Hour Film Project is an international film competition in which filmmakers must write, shoot, edit and score a short film in just 48 hours. Crews get ready - kick off is on Friday 12 October 2012.
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours. On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Then it will show at a local theater, usually in the next week.The 48 Hour Film Project is the world’s largest timed film competition, currently run in over 100 cities. All creativity must take place during the "Official 48 Hour Time Period"
All 48 hour competitions will occur between Friday, 12th October 2012, 7pm EST Sydney Time (known as Kickoff) and Sunday, 14th October 2012, 7pm EST Sydney Time (known as Dropoff). This is the Official 48 Hour Time Period. The participating team must complete its film and successfully upload it by Sunday at 7:30pm EST Sydney Time.
The 48 Hour Film Project's mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. Through its festival/competition, the Project encourages filmmakers and would-be filmmakers to get out there and make movies. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on "doing" instead of "talking."
Friday 12th October 7pm
