The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie - write, shoot, and edit - in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, a prop and a line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in - and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families.
The 48HFP is the world's oldest and largest timed filmmaking competition – the granddaddy of them all. If you want the real deal, this is it. The 48HFP is all about creativity and fun. It's also about community. For years the 48HFP has been helping local creative people connect to make films. These connections go beyond filmmaking – taking part in the 48 helps people find friends, collaborators and jobs!
This year on August 3-5th, 2018, thousands of passion-filled filmmakers began the race of their lives here in our great city of Los Angeles to make a film in 48 hours! And now their hard work will be prominently displayed at our 2018 LA 48HFP Premiere Screenings before a live audience at the beautiful Regal Cinemas LA Live.
Our team (named Ocean Bottle Productions) was one of three student teams out of 174 teams who entered the competition. Seniors Keely S. '19, Giovanna M. '19 and Max C. '19 had talked about making a film over the summer so this was the perfect vehicle!
The film Production Team was comprised of 7 Seniors:
Giovanna M. '19
Enzo O. '19
Sabine H. '19
Olivia H. '19
Jacob M. '19
In addition to three SAG actors, our Cast included Junior Lolli S. '20 and recent graduate J.J. Totah '18. Taking on the role of Producers were parents Tricia Savitt and Scott Montoya.
The title of the film is God’s Tweet and after a great premiere screening downtown at L.A. Live on August 15, the students are excited to submit the film to additional film festivals across the country!
