Director of Photography James Lea had a bit of fun last weekend working with a team entry for the Richmond 48 Hour Film Project. The group drew the Science Fiction assignment and came up with a rather creative entry.

During the 48 Hour Film Project, teams produce their own movies—they write, shoot, edit, and score them—in just 48 hours. On Friday night, the teams are assigned a character, line of dialogue, prop, and a genre, all of which must be included in their movies. 48 hours later, their movie must be completed and turned in.  The next weekend, the movies are shown at a local theater.

The script came in at 12 pages—a bit long for a 48 Hour Film Project script—but the team did a fantastic job getting all of the scenes lit and in the can in a rather short amount of time.  The film was turned in on time and it’s up to the judges to decide who wins.
