A Friend for Life

This film from the Edinburgh 48 Hour Film Project brought home multiple awards — and frankly could have probably captured others in many of the 120+ cities worldwide where the competition occurs.

Let’s be clear about this.  This movie was conceived, written, shot, and edited in just two days. If you’re a filmmaker, you have to be humbled by this accomplishment.

The intrepid heroes who made 48 Hour movies in San Jose this year will learn who won awards from the jury at the end of this week.  Keep an eye out here or on the official FB page (http://facebook.com/sj48hfp) for new details.
