Someone told us recently that they felt that everyone does a comedy for the 48 Hour Film Project.
The team that made this film (Done in 47) was willing to take on more difficult subject material. They did and it worked out well for them.
They brought home awards for Direction, Acting, and for Cinematography with this entry in the San Jose 48HFP.
Caution: Although tastefully done, this is NSFW and may be too intense for younger viewers.
This weekend, Filmapalooza is happening in LA and many films like this one will be screened and presented with awards from the global judging panel. More information about it can be found here: https://www.48hourfilm.com/mn/filmapalooza/2013/#schedule
