Thank you for a great meeting tonight. I am very encouraged by our team of filmmakers. We decided to pursue four film projects over the course of the next four months. Here are the Title/Subject and Shooting Schedule:
"Fast Food Mockumentary". Sat, August 31. Comedy
"Fur Baby". Sat, September 28. Dark Comedy
"Horribly Beautiful". Sat, October 26. Sci-fi
"Pain". Sat, November 30. Action
Some technical elements that we would like to experiment with are:
Black and White
Out of the four ideas that we discussed, only one script has been completed. For the remaining three concepts the writers agreed to prepare something. In order to keep to our schedules, we need all three scripts completed by August 31. Free scriptwriting software can be found at www.celtx.com. Keep in mind, that each page is typically one minute of film footage.
The parameters of each project is to limit our films to 4-7 minutes in length, to utilize 1-3 locations and to spend one day filming with editing taking place simultaneously. Ideally, our short film project should be ready to view and post by the next meeting and before the following film shoot.
Feel free to communicate any ideas here in this forum regarding projects or collaborations.
"48 Hour Films - Detroit" is for the film making hobbyist and pros with a focus on fun! If you want to write, cast, direct, act, operate equipment (cameras, sound, light), create music, post production edit, etc you came to the right place. This group will make short films in the 4-15 minute range with a target production time of over a weekend (48 hours). Meet ups will occur at least monthly. We also have sub group meet-ups that are focused on specific areas of the craft such as acting, writing, editing, equipment and such.
