This week, Film Jams is taking a behind-the-scenes look at how to make a 48 hour film with our 2018 Tampa 48 Hour Film Project winner, “Love Hurts,” which you can WATCH HERE <<. This film was shot in only 48 hours, including the script writing, filming, visual effects, and post-production. What’s that you want to know more…? Let’s go behind the scenes!

2018 48 Hour Film Project Winner

The 48 Hour Film Project challenges local filmmakers from all over the world to completely make a short film, 4 to 7 minutes, in only 48 hours. It starts out with a set of required elements that you must include in your film, a character, a line of dialogue, and a prop. In Tampa Bay’s case, the character was Sam or Sally Turnbucket (a city employee), our line was “Who wants to know?”, and our prop was a Lamp. After the general requirements, each team is then randomly assigned a genre for their film. We pulled Disaster Film!

Our time frame was July 13-15, our mission was to make the best darn 48 hour film we could. It was a great collaborative effort, and The Film Jams team ended up winning best film, best directing, best actor (Christian Cashmir), best actress (Brielle Carter), best editing, best musical score, best writing, best sound design, best cinematography, best graphic design, and audience choice at the awards ceremony on August 8, 2018.

Our team took home 11 awards at the 2018 Tampa 48 Hour Film Project

Our crew was led by directors Christian Cashmir and Josh Noftz, produced by Maggie Hudak and Christian Cashmir, cinematography by Sean Keller, and edited by Lucas Schatzberg, Christian Cashmir, and Jared Miller.
