We made a film in 48 hours...

…and it won the Austin 48-hour film festival!

Sometimes the biggest roadblock to completing a creative project is the lack of a deadline. For us, entering the 48 hour film festival was a great way to get our juices flowing and force us to make quick strong decisions on a narrative project. We drew the Silent Film category, and went to work securing the beautiful Arlyn Studios in South Austin to serve as the location for the project.

Our amazing team wrote, shot and edited this film in all of 2 continuous days, and ended up winning 8 awards including best film. We got to go to LA where Songbird was screened along with all of the international 48-hour winners. It was quite the experience, and I think we are all, finally, caught up on sleep.
