The weekend? June 24 - 26, 2016
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Cincinnati, OH area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2017 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2017, Court Métrage.
Jeff Winkelman, from W.H.O. Productions, Winner of the 2012 Cincinnati 48hr Film Project - Best Film - and participant since 2003, will facilitate this workshop from a Producer or Team Leader's view. Come and share best practices and help out teams that may be starting their first 48hr Cincinnati experience.
Steve Francia, with the Cincinnati Actor’s Studio - http://cincinnatiactorsstudio.com - will facilitate this workshop. Being on set for a 48hr project is very different from any other production environment. Learn how actors can help contribute to a smooth set and the quality shots the team needs to make a good film.
Come and play games as your team leaders race to drop off the movie in time for awards. Challenge one of your crew members to an X-Box Kinect bowling game, if you win, they pay for your screening ticket. This challenge will enter your bowling scores in the lottery (highest score) for 2 free (all blocks) screening tickets and 2 Best of Cincinnati viewing tickets, an eighty-dollar value.
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Cincinnati in only 48 hours.
