Last year, my friends and I competed in the San Francisco 48 Hour Film Project. It was the first time for all of us, and we were in for quite the weekend. In planning for it, I knew I wanted the experience to be captured on tape (yes, i said “tape”!). This was also the first time the folks I put on this documentary team (Antonio Galvan, Mike Nunez, Cedric Reyes) were in control of a project this big, let alone a documentary at that. I tried my best to give them a crash course in the basics of shooting for the edit, and let them loose.
Fast-forward almost one year later, and now the final segment has been completed. Much props to the whole team, especially to Antonio who was stubborn enough to stick to finishing the edit at a time when the momentum and excitement of the weekend had all but vanished (their original deadline was just a few weeks after that weekend. it was meant to be a quick project for them to get their feet wet… then it became stuck in “post-hell”).
His relentless pursuit of the final edit pushed him to edit a couple of hours each night after work for the past several months, and he successfully turned hours upon hours of (to be quite honest) mundane footage into the memorable story of our experience competing in the 48 Hour Film Project. Not only that, he edited this bad boy using iMovie. iMovie?!!? I don’t even know how to use iMovie!
Also, if you haven’t seen it, here is the final edit of our film, “Ties that Bind”.
Stay tuned this summer, for the dates of the 2010 SF 48 Hour Film Project have just been announced. ROUND 2! The Madness continues…
