The Film Jams team submitted a short into this year’s Tampa 48 Hour Film Project. Our film, "Love Hurts," was made entirely in 48 hours, including script writing, filming, VFX, and post-production. We shot the short film on the ARRI Alexa Mini with a Fujinon 20-120mm Cabrio zoom lens.
Our film was nominated for 18 of 20 awards and we won Best Film, Best Directing, Best Writing, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Music, Best Sound Design, Best Graphics, and Audience choice!
The 48 Hour Film Project is a global challenge that inspires local filmmakers to produce films in under 48 hours. Teams must include a character (Sam Turnbucket, city official), prop (a lamp), and line of dialogue ("Who wants to know") in order to qualify. A genre is also given, that’s different for each team. Our genre was "Disaster Film". Keep a look-out next Friday for the behind-the-scenes video on how we made this short film shot on ARRI Alexa Mini in 48 hours!
Special thanks to our 2018 Tampa 48 Hour Film crew who helped make this movie during the July 13-15th weekend. We got no sleep but it was fun and worth it! Our team has participated in the Tampa, St. Pete 48 Hour Film Project over the last few years and it's always a blast! If you're new filmmaking looking to meet people and collaborate definitely try it!
If you have any questions on the techniques used in this Alexa Mini short film, please send a note in the comments. Thanks for watching our 2018 Tampa 48 Hour Film, Love Hurts!
