XPLANE Designer Completes 48 Hour Film Project

Could there be a movie star amongst us? In mid-August, XPLANE Associate Creative Director Marvin Gaviola, participated in the 48 Hour Film Project in Portland. This global event brought filmmakers together from all over the world to compete for the title of best short filmmaker – in only 48 hours.

Marvin worked as part of a team to write, shoot, edit and score a film - all in a short 48-hour window. The Portland event kicked off on the evening of Friday, August 10 with teams getting a character, prop, line of dialogue and genre, all of which had to be included in the film. Films completed and dropped off by 7:30pm on August 12, would then be screened at the Hollywood Theatre on August 15. Portland’s winning film will ultimately go up against the other top films from cities around the world.

This year, the 48 Hour Film Project expects over 50,000 filmmakers will make nearly 4,000 films in 120 cities on six continents around the world. Over the 11 years of 48 Hour Film Project over 19,000 films have been made by 278,000 people.

ABOUT 48 HOUR FILM PROJECT
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours. On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Then it will show at a local theater, usually in the next week. In 2012, over 50,000 filmmakers will make almost 4,000 films in 120 cities on 6 continents around the world. Over the 11 years of 48 Hour Film Project over 19,000 films have been made by 278,000 people.
