Our film is done.
The DVD is spun.
We turned it in, and had fun.
Now we sleep, for we have had nearly none.
48 hour is over, and we’re now bums.
Hope we won!
It is here! The much-anticipated 48 hour film competition has arrived. We must write, shoot, and edit a short film in less than two days. Crazy, right?
Doorway Films and our team members have dubbed ourselves Team Fizbin, after the eloquent and dizzying game played by Capt. Kirk on Sigma Iotia II. Keep tabs of our Twitter, as we will be posting real-time updates as to our progress, as time allows, throughout the competition. At about 6 PM tonight, we will receive our assigned genre, line of dialogue, prop, character, and fortune cookie.
Fortune cookie, you ask? Well, this competition is called the Fortune Cookie 48, due to the fact that the last element of each film is based on the fortune from a real fortune cookie, and teams will be graded on how well they creatively interpret and incoprorate their respective “fortunes” into their films. Each film must be 5-7 minutes in length, as filled with shimmering awesomeness throughout. Wish us luck–we will need it!
Today’s video is a personal favorite made by a close friend of mine, Josiah Blizzard. (Cool name, right?) This short entertains the idea of…well, I’ll just let you watch it. It reminds me of some old KeyWhole Entertainment work, if you ask me. If you want to see more of his work, head on over to Blizzard Productions.
