It's hard to believe, but we are less than two weeks away
from this year's 48 Hour Film Project! Now that we're getting closer to crunch time, it's time for some updates:
-First off, thanks to everyone who came to our open auditions at the Shadowbox on Saturday
! We had 4 hours of actors coming through to perform for our team leaders. Special thanks go out to our friends at the Holding Tent
, The Expo
, and the students at Katz Acting Joint
as well as our lovely and talented group of volunteers for helping make everything run smoothly!
-We are at full capacity for teams right now
, but if any spaces open up (or if we add a new screening group), we will
invite teams off the waiting list in the order they signed up. Want to
be one of those lucky teams? Sign up today to save your spot in
the waiting list
- plus you lock down the current price
before it jumps
up!! (Note - payment will not be required unless space opens up for
-Our next mixer
is this Friday, August 3rd
from 5-8pm at Chickee Wah Wah
(2828 Canal St., NOLA). Friday's mixer will be the last event before the 48 weekend. Looking for those last key people for your team? Looking to be a part of a team? This mixer is an opportunity for filmmakers to meet face to face and prepare of the craziest weekend of your year!
We will also hold our Technical Orientation
at this event
. Our Technical Director, Sergio Lobo-Navia will be on hand to answer questions about file formats, renders, and all of the important info to help make your film shine on the big screen.
For those of you who remember our camera crew from last year, we will also show a recap of last year's 48 Hour Film Project
, starring you, the 48 Hour filmmakers. Relive the excitement and the pitfalls before making this year's 48 Hour film. We will also screen some films from previous years of the 48 Hour Film Project
. All of our team leaders from years past are invited to bring copies of their film (or films) to screen at the mixer.
Hope everyone is doing well in their preparations and getting ready for a frantically fun 48 Hour weekend! See you on Friday!
