The 48 Hour Film Project
Talk about edge-of-your-seat filmmaking: You're given a character, a prop, a line and a genre, and then you're put to the tall task of making the most incredible and unforgettable short film you and your crew possibly can. The catch? You have just two short days. Like a mission delivered straight out of a Bond film, you're armed with a camera instead of a gun and copious amounts of coffee instead of a shaken (not stirred) Martini. Should you choose to accept this mission, it kicks off today at Orpheum Arts Space (500 Second Street SW), with all entries dropped off by 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at Kelly's Brew Pub (3222 Central SE). The screenings begin next week at the KiMo, with one lucky team advancing to compete against winners from around the world. For more information and to register, visit 48hourfilm.com/albuquerque.
