A film in 48 hours…
23 August, 2006 1 Comment
OK, so I’m a bit behind the times with this post, but I thought it was worth a shout out to Mike and his team that put together an entry for NZ’s 48Hours Film Competition which took place at the end of May this year.
What’s the competition all about? This from the 48Hours website,
Teams have just 48 hours to create an entire short film – this means writing, shooting and editing – or die trying. Shorts are then seen in cinemas and judged by a huge appreciative audience. The top 8-12 from each city are chosen by a panel of judges to compete in their city’s final. And then, the best short from each city competes in a live TV National Final on C4.
This year Mike’s team was given the following,
- Genre: Based on a True Story
- Line: “That’s what I’m talking about”
- Character: “Robin Slade – an eternal optimist”
- Prop: mirror
So, without further rambling from me, here’s their entry titled “Coupled”…

And here’s Mike’s comments on the 12 regional finalists.
Kudos guys. Look forward to next year. 🙂
