Hello All and welcome to Summer Vacation! I’ve been absent for the past too many weeks, and part of my excuse, other than closing down the 2013-2014 school year, is that I participated as a chaperone for my high school’s participation in the “48 Hour Film Project.”
The Film Club’s members have participated in this film festival for the past three years, and I gladly accepted the challenge of chaperoning a 48-hour lock-in at the school, not completely realizing that it would take place the Friday night of our last day of school, which also happened to be the midnight premiere of “The Fault in Our Stars,” which I took my College Mentor Program members to the night before. More to come on that. Regardless, it was an amazing experience!
As it states above, each club is given the chance to pull from a hat containing multiple movie genres. Ours was “Chase/Escape.” We were to include a balloon, a character named Robert/Bobby/Barbara Vincent, a tax collector, and the line of dialogue, “It’s my turn.” While we are still waiting to see which film won in our grouping, we did take home the title of, “Audience Favorite.”
Below is a link to our 7 minute chase/escape film, “999 Ways to Escape Detention.” Please note that this is the acting debut for yours truly. Please do not judge me too harshly.
