Best of Baltimore 48 Hour Film Project
The 48 Hour Film Project just brought its wild, sleepless weekend of filmmaking back to Baltimore for the second straight year.
On Friday, July 14, twenty-six teams of local filmmakers hit the streets of Charm City in their race against the clock- to write, shoot, score, and edit their films- all in 48 hours!
Now you can see the 12 best 48 Hour films of Baltimore 2006!
Wednesday, August 2, 8:00 PM at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Tickets are $8
See two of the funniest silent black and white films made in this millenium, "Don Addersley Eats Bad Meat" and "Go Lawrence Go". There are two very different Road Movies, one haunting and tender, and one that's haunting and not-so-tender, each with its own equally surprising twist at the end. Also included are a Fantasy Film, "Carpe Duncan", by one of 2005' s favorite teams, Knights of the B; "The Date",a Romance about the battle of the sexes; and the hilarious Detective/Cop film, "I Will Not.." that features an overeager cop and his very inappropriate date.
On Friday, July 14, the teams drew from a hat to determine the genre of their films. The genres included Road Movie, Horror, Detective/Cop, Sci Fi, Holiday Film, and Buddy Film. A second drawing determined the single character, prop and line of dialogue that each team had to use somewhere in its film.
For Baltimore 2006:
Character: Joe or Joeanne Murphy, Physical Education Teacher
Line: "Just give her time to figure it out."
Each film must be less than 7 minutes, and team members must all be volunteers-though they can be professionals in the film/video world.
What happens when you give teams of filmmakers exactly 48 hours to make a movie? Last year, one team set fire to a house in the country. the winning B-more team was nearly arrested, and then nearly beaten up as they shot along Baltimore's infamous 'The Block'. Another staged a fight on a roof, so real that the police responded.
See the results of their wild weekend of filmmaking at the Baltimore Museum of Art!
Wednesday, August 2, at 8 PM.
The winning Baltimore film will represent Baltimore at the 48 Film Project's national screening, will be featured on a nationally distributed DVD, and will compete for Panaonic's sexy new HD camcorder (valued at about $7,000). Last year the 30 city winning films were screened at the prestigious Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, CA and the year before at the South by Southwest film festival, in Austin,TX, with the filmmakers in attendance both years.
The 48 Hour Film Project, the first and biggest of the timed film competitions, brings filmmaking teams together to make a movie from scratch - teams write, shoot, edit and score original music - all in just 48 hours. The Project is held in over 30 cities, including Baltimore, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Paris.
