The Things we do

Game Set Match - The Frantic 48 Film Challenge 2019 PRIMAA

What can you shoot in one weekend? The 48-hour challenge is how it sounds, with some fun twists.

Friday at 6:00PM (in Fort St John) you receive an email notification with instructions on what criteria you need to incorporate. You have a rag tag group of like-minded individuals ready to get down to business. The clock starts, time is already running out…

You agree on a concept and you hope it’s what everyone was thinking of. The writers are off to make a script that is both entertaining and captures the genre that is required. Everyone else is getting equipment ready to shoot and are heading to location if they’re needed.

Time keeps ticking by minute by minute... It’s 1:25AM before you get home, you have to be back at a different location by 5:00AM to set up before the light changes. The only thing keeping you awake after only 3.5hrs of sleep is the humans beside you because they are just as crazy as you are.

It’s time for post to take the reins and bring the vision of the short film to life. They have less then 24 hours left to cut, edit, colour/sound correct. If they don’t turn in a finished product by exactly 6:00pm they will be disqualified from the contest; the pressure is on! Your finished product is rendering now, this is the time you can think of all the things you could have done had you only had a few more hours…

You are now the proud co-parent of this beautiful imperfect short film. You have made new connections with people you might not have ever met.

Make memories, stay creative!
