This year, Sofia decided she’d experience the 48H FILM PROJECT madness, so she put together a team to participate in this short film contest which happened this weekend, September 10-12.
For this contest, the teams are required to produce a short film (4-7 minutes) in only 48 hours: on Friday 8 p.m., you learn the genre of the film you have to make, and three mandatory elements you have to include: a prop, a character and a line.
On Sunday, 8 p.m. you have to deliver your short film: fully edited.
Can you imagine the wild, sleepless, unpredictable and crazy weekend this is? It’s a real challenge, but isn’t that what real artists love? Oh yes!
Sofia’s team, STORY IN A BOX, made the short film Samanta: Má ou Santa which premieres in Cinema São Jorge in October 2, alongside other short films from the 48 Hour Film Project Lisboa.
