Here’s the challenge: your team is given a genre, a character, and a line of dialogue. It might be a musical with a businessman who delivers the line, “I’m happy with that.” And now, you have two days to complete a short movie that will compete against dozens of others for a top prize. We’ll hear about the results of the competition, known as the 48 Hour Film Project.
- Mark Ruppert Creator and Co-Executive Producer, 48 Hour Film Project
- Chris Andersen Director and team leader of The Quest improv group
