This past weekend some pals and I made our first film for the 48 Hour Film Project here in Minneapolis where a whopping 85 teams competed!
Here’s how it works:
Last Friday evening at 7pm each of the 85 teams drew a genre out of a hat, along with a character, prop and line of dialog. Then, the clock starts ticking as each team has 48 hours to script, storyboard, shoot, edit, et al a film between 4 and 7 minutes long before turning it in on Sunday at 7pm.
My team, GOAL!FiLMS, drew the genre : DRAMA
The other elements are as follows:
character : Jason or Jill Meyers [who happens to be a veterinarian]
prop : portable music player
line of dialog : ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThey will get them if we let them.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
Paternoster opens on the big screen this Thursday at the Riverview Theater at 9pm.
The teamsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ films are running all week with two showings each on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and next Monday nights.
