This past weekend we made a film in 48 hours. It wasn’t part of any contest or competition. It was just what the kids call “for fun.” We stayed true to the 48HFP rules though and used a genre, line, prop, and character that were randomly drawn from a Cards Against Humanity deck.
Biggest challenge of the weekend: working with a dwindling crew. We started off with a robust 20 people, but by the time we actually started making the film we had lost our writer, director, backup director, editor, makeup person, and an actress. Somehow I managed to stay behind the camera and make a pretty good film.
Genre: Creature Feature
Prop: The Rapture
Characters: Strong females
Line: Reconciling quantum theory with general relativity.
