What can YOU do in 48 hours? See the films and VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITES! #WFA48
WINTER FILM AWARDS challenged the local community to create a 4-7 minute short film in a specified genre, tagline and prop in just a single gonzo weekend! Thirty teams of the most creative people in the tri-state area had just 48 sleepless hours to decide what they were going to do, write the screenplay, assemble their props, costumes and actors, then rehearse, shoot, score and edit their film. Students, amateurs, and seasoned industry veterans alike learned the importance of caffeine, team work and time management in successful filmmaking.
The 2014 WFA 48-Hour Film Challenge began Friday November 7 at 8pm. The prop was CITIBIKE, and the tagline was from Mayor Ed Koch … “Well, I’m still in New York. Thank you, God.”
Here are the completed films! Watch and “LIKE” your favorites!
On Friday November 21 8-11pm, the best entries will be screened at Blondies (212 W 79th St, New York NY 10024) followed by an Award Ceremony, awesome prizes and networking party. Over $14k in prizes will be awarded!
