This passed weekend, the 48 Hour Guerrilla Film Competition took place, connecting filmmakers from around the globe for the two day challenge. The seventh annual film-sprint meant competitors would have to write, shoot, and edit an entire short film in 48 hours. At the sound of the gun, a specific genre and line of dialogue was given, which had to be used in each film.
Whether they were first-time students, amateurs, or industry pros, they competed for a chance to win $5000 and have their film shown on the big screen. Bringing together the art of film, passion, and a creative spirit, the project turns filmmaking into a competitive sport.
My good friend and co-worker, Jeff Payne, entered the competition with his film entitled 'A Cup of Tea.' With many years of experience in film, he runs the Media department at Active Website and co-owns an independent production company called 609 Productions. After a mentally exhausting and sleep deprived weekend, his work really paid off... and yeah, I think he's pretty great.
