Team Classic Win 48 Hour Furious Film Challenge

Team Classic Win The '48 Hour Furious Film Challenge'

Last night - Sunday 20 June - in front of a full house at the CIVIC THEATRE, TEAM CLASSIC took out the top award at the annual 48 HOUR FURIOUS FILM CHALLENGE.

The object was to write, shoot, edit and survive the making of a 4 to 8 minute short film in just 48 hours. 82 teams started at 7pm Friday night (June 11) and 71 teams made it to the finish line at 7pm on Sunday.

12 teams were selected for the final.


The writers managed to combine all three elements in the finished film titled 'JESSE McLEOD - THE JOURNEY'.

Included in the prizes was a return trip to the USA. Producer SCOTT BLANKS has passed this airfare on to director, TE RADAR, in order that he may take his recently completed documentary, shot last Xmas in Palestine, to the touring 'Peace' circuit in the USA.

Further screenings of THE JOURNEY and other 48 HOUR shorts are coming soon to THE CLASSIC.
