The St. Louis 48 Hour Film Project
What Happened During Your Weekend?
The St. Louis filmmakers share stories from their wild weekend of filmmaking. (Blogging ended shortly after the filmmaking weekend.)
SuperFun, SuperCrazy, SuperEducational
This was nearly everyone on my team\\\'s first 48hr, some it was there first time on a video shoot, and with a window of 1-5 on Saturday to film everything on location; it was challenging to say the least. We worked together and stayed focus enough to put together a short that met both of the goals I had for the 48.
1) We got it turned in on time.
2) I can stand to watch it more than once.
We had actors that couldn\\\'t make it, actors that could only be there for a short amount of time, we were shooting at a cafe that was running so there was all that background noise, there were fire trucks and motorcycles and we almost lost a few props but it all worked out.
All and all, it was the time on my life and I can\\\'t wait until next year.

48 hours of fun
Well, not all fun, but always a thrill and very rewarding. We had to do quite a bit of hiking and lugging equipment to a couple of our locations, so that filled in for any missed work outs. We had a great cast and crew and enjoyed our first STL 48 Hour adventure (almost as much as the sleep we had when it was all over).

Good times in St Louis
I had the great pleasure to work with Brain Freeze Productions again this year, and had such fun creating our little short, Happy Hour. With Dick Taylor at the helm, it's always kind of like a game of charades with cameras. Will Shaw is the consummate funny-man everyman, and Joe Marlotti is quite the chameleon comedian. After a three hour writing brainstorm, we set up in the C.J. Muggs in Webster Groves and shot throughout Friday night. The "youngsters" aka "the survivors" had one shot to do in the morning and then... POST. Dick did his magic. We added Mr Neales soundtrack...BOOM! Movie. And, as usual,it all just went so quick and was over so fast.
