A couple of weekends ago I was lucky enough to be involved in a fun "72 Hour Film Festival" mini movie filmed by David Derickson. It was a BLAST and the film won an award, Best Use of Prop!!!!!!! The prop= an egg.

What is the 72 Hour Film Festival?
Each filmmakers' challenge began Thursday, April 21, 2011 at the Grand Cinema. 30 filmmaker teams gathered for the instructions on what needs to be in their 5 minute short film. It's simple - they have 72 hours to write, shoot and edit a unique and creative short film that includes these specific elements:
- A character must have a SUPER POWER
- Line of dialogue: "What are you going to do about it?"
- Prop: an egg
- Location: a dock or pier
- 5 minute maximum length, including credits
The films were due back at the Grand on Sunday, April 24th.
Finally, everyone was invited to watch these great local films at the Festival Party on Friday, May 6. The evening concluded with the annual awards ceremony, to recognize the best use of the different criteria, for a total of six (6) awards.
