48hrs of furious film making!

The black swan had a very busy weekend, involved in a team for the 48hr film competition. This is the second time that I've taken part, and
as I anticipated it was a blast!
For those that haven't heard of 48hrs before, you are given a genre (by random selection), character (name and trait), prop and a line of dialogue and then you have 48hrs to make a short film between 1 and 7mins long... so you have to brainstorm, write, shoot, edit, and of course find all the relavant people and props to help make it happen!
We had revenge as our genre, Alex Puddle who was an exaggerator, a rock and the line "it doesn't fit".
The photo below was my best prop contribution... a shot taken of the family in our story, which I gave a little bit of a tweak in Photoshop, and was then filmed in later footage.
It's an amazing way to spend a weekend, working with other creative types under ridiculously tight deadlines, and you come out the other side feeling like you've made instant friends for life. I highly recommend it to everyone!
