48 hour film: Autumn Leaves
For those who don’t know the premice of a 48 hour film challenge, it’s simple. You collect your brief on friday night, detailing you the prop you must use, the theme and the line of dialogue your short must contain. You hand in the finished product in on Sunday. Sounds easy right? The stills and making of video will tell how it really happened.
So not only did the 8 of us manage to put all of that together, but we produced something that the Exeter Phonenix wanted to screen in their 2 Short Nights film festival.
It’s being shown this Thursday, at 9.15pm. Details available here, come along if you’re around.
WE WON! Wow..this is incredible. The quality of the films which were produced for this competition was fantastic, which makes it all the more incredible to say that we won Best Film in the 48 hour Film Challenge. Congratulations to the team. It was a great experience to watch the first short film I was involved in being screened in a cinema, and to have the honour of collecting the award on behalf of the crew, it was a great privilege. Thanks for having us Exeter!
A lot of thanks are owed to many different people who helped us along the way.
Though the cast (Lucy and Ross), crew (Ali, Dave, Ruby, Osguz, Jack) derserve a massive congratulations for their hard work, as do the people we thanked in the video played a huge role in making it happen, there are others I like to mention who helped in the pre-production process:
- Elmely Delacour – offered great Exeter location suggestions
- Hugh Godfrey – planning and logistics
- My Parents, for putting up with the chaos that a 48 hour film can cause.
it was a fantastic weekend and we still can’t believe the final product that our sleep deprived husks of ourselves managed to pull off. We enjoyed doing it, and are already thinking about the next one.
Stills from the shoot are here.
