Last week I was in Atlanta, Georgia for Filmapalooza, a film festival for the winning films of each regional 48 Hour Film Project city. The film I worked on as cinematographer won the Orlando 48 Hour Film Project so are crew geared up and made a trip to Atlanta.
Out of the 4500 entries only a little over 130 made it to Filmapalooza. Our crew went representing Orlando and after 4 days of viewing the winning shorts we were announced to be part of the Best of Filmapalooza showing on the last day of the festival. This meant we were in the Top 12 of all the films which leads to our film being part of the 48 Hour Film Project Block being shown at Cannes this year! We were one of the few American films to get selected by 48 Hour Project and the first time Orlando has ever been selected to be part of the 48 Hour Films Block at Cannes. So in a few months we will be flying out to France to be part of the Cannes Film Festival, until then here is our film "Wake Up".
