This past weekend there was a 48-hour movie competition, The 48 Hour Film Project, that took place in New Hampshire. On Friday night teams were given a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue. The teams had 48 hours in which to write, shoot, edit, and score a complete movie!
The films will be shown on Wednesday, and the public is invited to attend.
Although you missed this year's competition, you can start planning for next year. Borrow one of these from our collection and study up on the art of film!
