Orlando 48 Hour Film Project Returns
By Douglas Lorah
The Orlando 48 Hour Film Project opens registration on Tuesday, June 23. This is part of the original 48HFP series that started nearly 15 years ago. Filmmakers are given 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit and 5 minute short film. What makes it more fun and challenging is that the filmmakers are given a line of script, a prop, character name, and a genre that must be used... and they don't receive these until the start of the competition.
There is a new local producer this year. Kyle Snavely, a previous participant, is taking over the reigns and running the show. If you take part this year, you may want to thank him. Otherwise, the event may have dropped from Orlando.
The Orlando 48HFP kicks off Friday, August 14 and all films must be turned in Sunday, August 16. Other important dates:
Early Bird Deadline - Monday, July 20
Regular Fee Deadline - Tuesday, August 4
