48 hour film
Friday Night at 7pm, they draw genres. Everyone is given a character name/profession, a prop, and a line of dialogue. They then must write, shoot, edit, and print a film for a 7pm deadline (and 9pm screening) on Sunday.
So the character was Ignazio Del Fuego, a taxi driver. The prop was a Collander. And the line? “It’s all your fault.”
So the drawing commenced, and people pulled “Film Noir” or “Comedy” or “action” we went dead last and had two choices: Soap Opera or Western Musical. We didn’t know that was our other choice until after we drew. We got Soap Opera
I ended up getting the Ignazio Del Fuego character. yup. I acted. I also made a lookalike DC taxi driver’s license for a prop and I’m sure I broke various laws by driving with an eyepatch on (a way to get extra credit points).
I had a blast and Sunday I did posters while they edited. We were the only film to have a poster and it was definilty a fun time had by all. Rock the casbah. Hollywood here I come!
