The 48 Hour Film Festival is a competition that is all over the
Country. The point of the competition is to make a film in 48 hours and
it competes against fellow filmmakers. All the winners of the selected
cities get their movies shown at Filmapalooza in Miami, Florida for a
chance to win the grand prize. This competition is fun and great
practice for all filmmakers. You can find about the Festival on these websites ( http://www.48hourfilm.com/cleveland/ , http://www.48hourfilm.com/filmapalooza/ )
Rewa Hage and her film was a mockumentary about a croquet competition to
win a scholarship to Balls State and the two men who are on two
different sides of the social ladder trying to win it. The film was
written filmed and edited in 48 hours. The rules of the 48 Hour Film
Festival was that you had to randomly pick a genre and the judges would
pick everyone a prop, line and challenge that needed to be incorporated
into the film. Our genre was mockumentary, our line was “I want to try”
the prop was flowers and the challenge was a character who was a
waiter/waitress named either Jill or Jack Hildebrand.
