Our Producers עלינו

Meet the Producers

A small team of dedicated Headquarters staff and a vast team of City Producers bring the 48HFP to our cities each year. This group of individuals come from many different backgrounds and from many different countries but share the commitment to make the 48HFP fun, fair and creatively invigorating.

Mark Ruppert Creator / Executive Producer

Mark came up with the idea for the 48 Hour Film Project back in 2001. As a filmmaker in his own right, Mark's belief in the power of creativity led him to challenge filmmakers to see what they can do in a single weekend.

The results have been phenomenal as the 48 Hour Film Project has found a place in 130 cities around the world--with more than 325,000 people having participated to date, creating more than 25,000 films.

Mark heads the international organization that runs the 48 Hour Film Project, coordinating more than 110 producers around the world. Mark's producing experience includes films, theater and special events. He has emceed award shows, international forums and his own talk/variety show.

Liz Langston Co-Founder / Executive Producer

Langston co-founded the 48HFP back in 2001. After years as a nerdy researcher she found that making movies was much more fun. Even she is surprised that spreading this love of filmmaking has met with such a large response. In 2011 Langston launched a spin-off 48HFP project – the 48 Music Video Project, and in 2012, launched the 48 Horror Project, which is rapidly spreading worldwide.

She manages the 48HFP; develops new opportunities; oversees marketing, social media, and public relations; engages with the press; and biennually spearheads the 48HFP's Film Festival, Filmapaplooza. She lives in Albuquerque, where she also produces the local 48HFP Film Project. She frequently attends film festivals and travels to 48HFP cities to connect with filmmakers and City Producers.

Christina Ruppert Director of Operations

Ruppert manages the day-to-day operations of the 48HFP, helps our City Producers manage their cities, documents and improves procedures, updates our website, and manages projects that involve the rest of the HQ staff. She lives with her husband Michael and sons Patrick and Charlie in Washington, DC.

Laura Schlecht Director of Web Operations

Laura is an actress, director and producer - having worked on numerous projects for both stage and screen. She currently resides in Houston and is involved with many local arts organizations.

Laura maintains the 48 Hour Film website and assists the rest of HQ with the day-to-day operations of the project.
