HP 48 Hours Filmmaking Competition


The national HP 48 Hours Filmmaking competition was held over the weekend. There were 50 Y12 and Y13 students involved in eight different teams who made a film over the weekend. On the first day everyone was given particular elements that had to be included in the film:

  • Character: Charlie Flowers – a thoughtful person
  • Prop: wool
  • Line: “One more time”
  • Technique: rack focus shot

As well as an assigned genre which ranged from rom-com, puppets, horror and crime to mystery, real-time, comedy of errors and time-travel. The highlight was spraying Mr Mortensen with fake blood as I got to murder him on screen. A lot of inside jokes were developed over the course of the weekend because you were spending so much time together. It felt like more than just two nights as it was an epic achievement to pull of a film in that space of time.
