The weekend? August 9 - 11, 2019
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Charlotte, NC area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2020 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2020 Short Film Corner.
The idea here is to discuss and share practical concepts Directors can use to be more effective in spuring on the story.
Reuben Bloom is a seasoned storyteller who has successfully branded his own style under Basic Cable (www.justbasiccable.com) and left his mark on organizations across town as well as the Charlotte 48 Hour Film Project.
He and I are looking to attract both aspiring and experienced directors to the room. 45 minute presentation, 20 minute discussion, and an hour networking is the recipe but we'll be open to allow the conversation to continue as needed. Information sharing is the purpose and goal of our time together.
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Charlotte in only 48 hours.
