At the Top of Your Head

The SF Bay Area indie filmmaking team It Donned On Me has been one most tenacious competitors in the 48 Hour Film Project and the International Doc Challenge.

Their 2011 entry Four Pauls tells a great story about the place a hat deserves in our culture.

Word on the street is that Evan Donn and his crew will be back again this year.  You could compete in the Doc Challenge yourself as registration is now open!  Looks like the Early Bird bonus is still in effect for a couple of more days.

Who Has The Last Laugh

This creepy little suspense was turned in for the San Jose 48 Hour Film Project in San Jose.

The team that created it was competing for the first time and proved right from the opening gun that they were in it for keeps.

Enjoy a nasty romp in Hector’s Playground.

You can see a the City Winners for 48 Hour Film Project films around the world at Filmapalooza in March. Plan to be in LA for the screenings and awards presentations — it’s the #48fhp Oscars.

That Frugal Vacation

In the many years that the 48 Hour Film Project has been coming to San Jose, there have been a number of films that have considered the issues of their times.

Never has one done such a great job however, at examining the excesses of frugal behavior, as this entry from team Chikinbone.

We found the story to be delicious and we hope you did too.

You can see the finest 48 Hour Film Project entries from around the world at Filmapalooza. This year it’s to be held from March 7-10 in Los Angeles.
