HIGH SCHOOL 48

Are You a Writer? Director? Actor?

Are You Ready To Make a Film?

The High School 48 is your chance to show the world what you can do as a filmmaker.  Whether your specialty is writing, acting, or directing, the HS48 puts the spotlight on your talent.

The HS48 challenges you and your team to create in only 48 hours.  This time limit puts the focus on teamwork, problem-solving, and creativity.  In other words, it focuses on "doing". 

At the end of the weekend, you have your creative work to show.  Our three competitions build on each other, but can also be done separately.

  1. The Short Script Project--receive your assignment on Friday night, then you have 2 days to write a script for a short film.

  2. The Storyboarding Project--whether you are an experienced artist, a beginner, or someone using computer art, the challenge is to visualize what key components of your film will look like. You will receive a story synopsis and will have two days to show your plan.

  3. The Film Project - where it all comes together! - you have 48 hours to write, shoot and edit a short film.  What can your team come up with?

All entries are judged by film industry professionals.  What are you waiting for?  Register today.

OUR EVENTS

High School 48 offers three separate challenges.  Try one, two or all three. 

(Though taking on all three on your own will be challenging.)

This is your chance to show off your creativity or to try something new.  The challenges are open to any high school student regardless of film and video experience.  

The Challenges are a good way to learn something new or to take what you've learned and make it real.  The best way to get into filmmaking is to make a film!
