2010 48 Hour Film Project – Cincinnati

Neil’s Blog Entry

This July, I took part in the 48 Hour Film Project, which is an international film competition. Once again, I joined my friends from Pro Video Bandits (our team name – pretty cool huh?) to write, film and edit a short film in just two days. Last year, our film won a bunch of awards including Best Picture, so I was excited about what we could do this year.

I served as the film’s editor, sound designer and did all the digital special effects, which was loads of fun. In previous years, the 48 Hour Film Project has been full of chaos, caffeine and just a little bit of poorly placed anger induced by a lack of sleep. This year, however went by very smoothly. In fact, we finished about three and a half hours early.

Our little film is not without flaws to be sure, but I am very proud of it. It’s called “Repeat After Me,” and is about a guy’s relationship with his father who is suffering from war-time memories.
We took awards for Best Special Effects, Best Sound Design and Best Acting.

      Thanks for the comment. Our requirements were a character named Greg White, a lemon as a prop, and the line of dialogue was “I need a drink.”
