48hours is all it takes

Time Running Away...

Well ‘The Turtles’ are registered as an official team in the 48hour film project. Yep you have 48 hours to make a short film that’s the premise.

The organisers give you a line of dialogue, a prop, a character and a genera then you have 48hours to write, shoot, edit, score and deliver your film – I’ve always liked a challenge!

It’s the first time in the history of the competition that Dubai is in the mix and Director Nizar Sfair and I are reuniting to make something special – I hope – maybe even intriguing, interesting and at least a visual feast!  We’re all sharing and expanding our usual roles in this ZERO budget project.

With the help of all the highly talented volunteers already signed up to the ‘The Turtles’ including acting coach Miranda Davidson from Miranda Davidson Studios it should have some depth of character, at the very least the actors WILL have a backstory!  I almost shed a tear just sitting in one of her classes the other evening…  Acting really is a dark art

Who knows what we’ll come up with, but it should be fun and as soon as I get the nod i’ll post it up here.

Thanks in advance to everyone who’s helping out including Alchemy Films who are providing some equipment, Bareface with additional cast and Optix for the use of their post production facility.  Now I better blow the dust off that 5D that helped me out so well with the Life in a Day project.
