Our amazing team wrote, shot and edited this film in all of 2 continuous days, and ended up winning 8 awards including best film. We got to go to LA where Songbird was screened along with all of the international 48-hour winners. It was quite the experience, and I think we are all, finally, caught up on sleep.
Sometimes the biggest roadblock to completing a creative project is the lack of a deadline. For us, entering the 48 hour film festival was a great way to get our juices flowing and force us to make quick strong decisions on a narrative project. We drew the Silent Film category, and went to work securing the beautiful Arlyn Studios in South Austin to serve as the location for the project.
