    Conceived, Shot, and Edited in 48 Hours...
    This past weekend I participated in the 48 Hour Film Project, a festival in which teams are given a genre, character name, prop, a specific line of dialogue, and 48 hours. I participated last year and it was so fun I just had to do it again this year.

    Character name/job: Bob Maloney, Lawyer
    Prop: Cell phone
    Genre: Fantasy

    Friday, we went to the meeting where teams drew their genre from a hat. We were hoping for an overly-broad genre like, drama or action/adventure, but we ended up getting Fantasy. I wasn't too happy with that, but we worked with what we got. It was 7:00pm and it was due 7:30 Sunday night.

    My team spent all Friday night coming up with a short script, we went to sleep around 1. Saturday, we woke up at 7am and went to a local park (which we had to get permission to shoot) and started blocking/rehearsing. We finished shooting at around 7pm, right before sunset. I started ingesting video at around 10pm and stayed up until maybe 3am. Everyone slept in on Sunday except me, I woke up around 6am and started editing. Didn't hit export until 5:45pm. We had it rendered, encoded, and burning at 6:50. Luckily I live rather close to the drop off spot. We got it in on time.

    We shot this entire video in HDV with two Sony HDR-FX1s, which I purchased for shooting weddings. We also shot using Sony's "film look" settings, called Cinematone and Cineframe (which is 24P) Audio was captured with two Azden wireless mics. I'm not incredibly happy with the audio (a lot of hiss), and the wireless mics record in Mono, which kind of sucks. I had to unlink the audio and copy down the left channel, so it's "stereo"...

    We edited on my dual 1.8Ghz Powermac G5 using Final Cut Pro. The songs were scored by one of my friends.

    All in all, it's an awesome experience that I'd recommend to any budding filmmaker. There is a festival in a lot of cities in the U.S., Link.

    Anywho, here is the video, let me know what you think...
