Blindly pick one of the pre-determined short film genres.
Write a script.
Cast the talent.
Secure the production locations.
Shoot your film.
…and deliver a final cut within EXACTLY two days (of the first draw) to a panel of judges who will award winners in 10 categories.
This is what the 48 Hour Film Project requires of its entrants.
In 2019, a film crew from Wheelhouse decided to step outside of our usual world of multi-draft television commercials, tightly-buttoned corporate marketing content, tech-intensive live production, etc., to see how they’d respond to the unique challenges of the 48 Hour.
They entered the competition’s Charlotte region, along with more than 25 other film crews.
“The Job” – a seven and a half minute dark comedy - is the final result of their efforts.
Written and directed by Brooks Quinn, “The Job” won 5 of the 10 categories, including Best of Charlotte 48, Judges Choice Award, Best Directing, Best Cinematography and Best Musical Score.
The film will represent Charlotte against all the other city winners around the world at Filmapalooza 2020 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
