RunawayTrain Productions participates in Albuquerque 48 Hour Film Project

48 Hour Film Project

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours.

The internationally recognized contest format created in 2001 involves a crazy idea: to try to make a film in 48 hours. The big question back then was: “Would films made in only 48 hours even be watch able?” The answer was a resounding yes, and now eight years later and with more than 150 competitions having taken place around the world, it is amazing to consider the success of the Project.

This summer, Brock Sherman, creative director at RunawayTrain Productions, in Denver, Colorado teamed up with Scott Takeda of Takeda Entertainment, Inc. to try their luck at this exceptionally challenging event held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Sherman explains: “On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialog and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. When complete, they show it to the public at a local theater, usually in the next week. It’s a challenge and a lot of pressure, but we feel we’re up to it”.

The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on “doing” instead of “talking.” Last year nearly 40,000 filmmakers made 3,000 films in in 76 cities.
