    Print this page

    As we have already reported, we are fresh from this year's 48 Hour Film Project, wherein teams of filmmakers have exactly two days to create a short film from start to finish, from writing to shooting to editing to rendering, and everything in between. The thirteen best entries to the project screened to a sold out crowd at Village 8 Theater last Saturday. Those who missed it can still see all thirteen films by clicking this link to buy the festival DVD.

    However, this year's winner of Best Film can be viewed right here: Team HiHo!'s Phenomenal Johnson. The specifications for this year were that every film must include a ball, the line “Help me get this out,” and a character by the name of Jack or Jill Olsen, a politician. Genres were drawn at random, and Team HiHo! were tasked with making a mockumentary.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
