The Tampa-St. Petersburg 48HFP
What Happened During Your Weekend?
The Tampa-St. Petersburg filmmakers share stories from their wild weekend of filmmaking. (Blogging ended shortly after the filmmaking weekend.)
What can I say?! This year was very interesting as usual! Our category was mistaken identity and so much of our first night was figuring out a concept that best fit. After about 5 hours of brainstorming we went to a nearby parking lot to shoot some night scenes and witnessed a fight in a parking lot across the street. It was pretty cool at first and once it got broken up we felt safe to continue shooting however once we resumed the shoot we heard sirens and realized we had a bigger problem. We were shooting a scene with a dead body in the trunk with a bunch of lights setup in a dark parking lot at 3am so I imagine this looked really suspicious from an outsiders point of view. Haha.. needless to say we hightailed out of there before the cops arrived and got the shot we needed. Great year with a great team! Check out our trailer.
