To finish an entire 5-minute film in less then 48 hours, you have to have some super-hero filmmaking abilities.
Luckily for us we must have them because we did it and we won this competition twice in a row.
The competition works by giving the entries a set of rules and 48 hours to write, direct and edit and film. It's a really tough challenge but also incredibly rewarding
Here was our most recent entry: Any hero will do
The rules we had for this film were:
Title: Any hero will do
Line of dialogue: "If we do this, we'll never see them again"
Prop/action: A glass, from which liquid is drunk
And here was our previous entry
Title: Into the ashes
Line of dialogue: "Am i supposed to be scared now."
Prop/action: A USB drive that is repeatably unable to access.
We ended up winning a pile of goodies. Including a macbook, green screen and a bunch of comic-con merchandise.
