This was our first 48 Hour Film competition. This particular competition was based in San Francisco, where there were another 70 teams competing. We were given a few required elements and then 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit the film.
Character: Claude Green, Guitarist
Prop: A Hat
Required Line: "I believe anyone can change."
We had our idea very quickly; however, we spent so many hours grueling over the script that by the time we had to shoot, we had gotten very little sleep and our brains weren't working very quickly. We were also at an extreme disadvantage as we only had a crew of 2, and 2 actors. The thing is, that's all we need. I'm extremely confident in my teams ability to make films with a skeleton crew. In fact, I'd venture to say there aren't many teams that can do what we can with the resources we have.
The screening for our film went very well. It was at the Roxie theater in San Francisco.
