After all the fun I’ve had doing 48 Hour Film Festivals, I decided I really wanted to try doing one by myself. Do the writing, the directing, the camera work, the sound, and even all the acting. And by myself, of course I mean with Julie’s help.
Looking at their schedule, I found that Richmond was holding a 48HFP, just a little ways down I95 from home. So I entered.
Here’s the director’s cut of what we produced. By director’s cut, I mean this is not the version that I completed in 48 hours and submitted, but rather a version that I spent another week editing.
I am happy with the result. I think it’s the best movie I’ve made yet. But I learned a lot of lessons, and I think there’s at least one major flaw in the movie. More on that when I have time for a post-mortem post.
