The Orlando 48 Hour Film Project
What Happened During Your Weekend?
The Orlando filmmakers share stories from their wild weekend of filmmaking. (Blogging ended shortly after the filmmaking weekend.)
A wild ride
Oh what a wild ride this was!! I am so thankful to have been a part of this incredible journey and my teammates made it ALL the better!! It couldn't have been done without them! We had issues, like everybody else, mostly with the weather, but we were able to work around it and push forward! I would do this again in a heartbeat, but this time I would have a PA and crafty!! No sleep and hardly any nourishment got me seeing double and there were a few times when we all got slap happy :D Great job O-Town Posse, see you all at the premier!!

48 Hour set life
Like many others might say, the weather threw my team off schedule. We had one scene (the one that set the whole mood) that was set for outside and were going to shoot in the early day, but the rain cut us off and pushed us back to a night time shoot.
We instead did the interior shots all day (and a huge portion of the night) before finally making our way back outside.
The actors were amazing and I was happy, or thrilled even, to have them on board and bring the script to life. We had a really great crew for people who have never met and joined up.

Awkward Flamingos make a horror film.
Awkward Flamingos formed six hours before the deadline for teams to sign up. We ran into an ad for the 48 hour film project, and two of my peers from college and I decided to join it for the experience! With added members that joined us during the 48, we created a horror film that was more about us making it together than what we created. Out of creating "Special Delivery" we hope to raise awareness that being Deaf or Hard of Hearing does not stop actors, or filmmakers from creating films. I can't wait for you guys to see our film, I hope you enjoy it!
- Amanda Bovea, Awkward Flamingos
Congratulations to all the teams of talent on both casts and crews. You took on the challenge. Once the smoke at the finish line had cleared, 23 of 36 teams made it by the deadline.
1/3 of the teams were late and several were facing technical issues. The late teams, although out of the categorical judging, will be screened and are still eligible for audience favorites.
I\\\'ve heard many stories from several of our teams and filmmakers. Keep your posts here, clean and civil, please. We want to hear about your experiences and accomplishments, what you learned, about your story/project, locations, weather, celebrities, etc.
Make sure to share your :48 second trailer with us on the www.facebook.com/orlando48hfp page.

Weather is Witch
After working long hours on our script Friday night we set up to start filming on Saturdays. Only an hour into our filming the thunderstorms decided to make a visit.
Needless to say our entire story line was based on exterior shots on the beach and in the ocean.
We had to regroup head back to base camp and come up with a new story line, new script outline and begin shooting all over again.
Needless to say the team came together, came up with the new storyline and had an afternoon of FABULOUS Fun.
Goes to show that collaboration is at it's best when the pressure is on.
