Y'all! Have any of you made a movie? Have acting/costuming/film editing/storyboard/art/anything I can't remember experience? Then I NEED YOU! Hell, even if you have amnesia and don't know anything about anything, I need you!
Yep, this year, after 5 years of hemming and hawing, I've gone and done it; I've committed to the 48 Hour Film Project. "What is the 48 Hour Film Project?" I hear you cry. Exactly what it says it is: 48 hours to make a movie. From scratch. You have to write, film, and edit the entire 4-7 minute flick in that time. The awesome part (besides making a MFing MOVIE!) is it is screened at a local theater, so we get to see the fruits of our labor presented in STUNNING TECHNICOLOR! Well, we probably will film in SHITTY DIGITAL FROM BEST BUY and not STUNNING TECHNICOLOR, but you get the point. You, me, red carpet. That's boss.
This event conveniently coincides with my birthday (11 July), so in case you were asking yourself, "What can I get for the hardworking Meetup Organizer who has everything?" Nothing is more valuable than your time, and I would be forever in your debt. I'll take everything from people dropping off food throughout the weekend to lower our craft service bill to actually agreeing to spend 48 hours with me in a mad acting/writing/editing dash to the finish line. I'll probably need a non-sleep deprived, coked up (just like a real director!) individual to drive the complete film to the finish line, so that would be handy too. Plus, then you could start your Hollywood dreams and start a page on IMDB or something.
I am hoping to get a hotel in Mission Valley to function as our studio back lot, because I don't want to be stuck out in El Cajon all weekend. I am currently wheedling my long-suffering partner into it, but he remains skeptical of its necessity. All that to say, the location will change as that does.
Comments are open, so let me know what you'd be interested in doing. I hope at least a few of you are able to help. This event is of course open to non-meetuppers as well. Feel free to pass my info along to any of your crazy friends who may be interested in joining in (even if you are not).
