48hours - Furious Filmmaking Competition
STEP ASIDE MR PETER JACKSON
48HOURS is coming. Lock up your pets.
48HOURS - Furious Filmmaking is officially New Zealand's largest filmmaking challenge. It is open to anyone with a strong constitution. It is not for cowards.
Teams have just 48HOURS to create an entire short film from scratch - this means writing, shooting and editing - or die trying. And if that wasn't tough enough, teams don't even know what sort of film they'll be making. i.e. horror, religious, fairtyale, silent.
The competition started in 2003 with just 44 teams in Auckland competing. The following year it grew to 80 teams in Auckland and 45 teams in Wellington. This year the competition is truly a national event with Christchurch and Dunedin joining the chaos. Over 4000 people will be united to create NZ short films on the weekend of May 13-15.
Each year 48HOURS is responsible for film rental facilities running out of gear, actors canceling commercials, celebrity friends being abused, broken bones, cheating, cops being called out, relationships imploding, moments of pure ecstasy, absolute exhaustion, extreme bonding, bribery, mountains of fun, production gear disappearing, freakouts, office spaces destroyed and more digital filmmaking genius than a 1000 monkeys can shake sticks at.
And this year the Grand National Winner will be voted by the public live on C4 Television - superstardom is just a click away. So... are you ready? Hurry up and sign up for one weekend you'll never forget. It just could be the start of something beautiful.
