48 Hour Film Project Fall Shootout
You can now see Hatuchama films on your phone!
See below for more details.
Twenty-seven city-winning teams completed films in the 48 Hour Film Project Fall Shootout on the weekend of November 2nd through 5th. They received the character, prop, line of dialogue, and genre by email Friday at 7pm local time and had until the post office closed on Monday to send us their film. The list of participating teams can be found to the right. The films can be seen on 48.tv.
Unlike any previous 48 Hour Film Project events, all teams were assigned the same genre—comedy/action adventure—and were asked to feature a member of the Hatuchama in their film. The teams received an amulet in the mail, as well as the Hatuchama tattoo.
"Hatuchama?" you say. "What the heck is that?"
Well the HATUCHAMA \hah too chah mah\ are a recently discovered secret society of people with supernatural powers. It is believed that members of the group derive their powers from special training and powerful amulets that have been passed down through the centuries. Not much is known about the supernatural powers of the Hatuchama. It is clear that the power differs from one Hatuchama to the next, and without his/her special amulet, the Hatuchama is powerless. Like the society itself, the powers have largely remained secret. Historians over the years have been able to piece together a list of powers linked to suspected Hatuchama. They include: Levitation, Hyper-Observation, the Chameleon Effect, Hyper-Speed and Acute Sense of Smell.
Congratulations to Team Juicebox from Seattle, who won the Fall Shootout with their film, "Lethal Cotillion"! And congratulations to all participants in the Fall Shootout—our judges remarked at how difficult it was to make the decision.
