Alan Kistler & friends win NYC Audience Award at 48 Hour Film Festival
From ComicMix contributor and all-around mensch Alan Kistler:
I do the 48 Hour Film Festival where you’re given a genre, character name, character
profession, prop, and a line of dialogue and have 48 hours to script it, film it, edit it and turn it in. It’s an international competition and this year we won the NYC Audience Award, which is pretty great.
Last year I was cast at the last minute after I helped with a read-through and they liked my performance. This year I appeared briefly and got to co-write it (also got to direct one scene, which was fun cuz I miss that).
This year, everyone was told to use a character named Ben Grimes who would be a “professional organizer”. The prop was to be a set of keys and the line of dialogue was “You’re not going to believe what I just heard.” The genre my group picked out of a hat was “Fantasy.”
Here’s the film. It’s a bit cropped here, so if you want to see it full-screen, go here.
