Gentlemen (and ladies), start your cameras. The producers of the Little Rock leg of this year’s 48 Hour Film Project have set up an informational meeting tonight for registered teams and those interested in signing up.
The meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. at Vino’s Brewpub, 923 W. 7th Street in Little Rock. Little Rock 48HFP producer Levi Agee will talk about the rules of engagement, and will provide a rundown of how filming and the submission of completed entries will go. The meeting will also serve as a meet-and-greet for those seeking a team to join.
This year, all the creative aspects of filming — from writing to shooting to final editing — will take place between 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19 and the drop-dead deadline of 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21. The kickoff and final hand-in will be at the Argenta Community Theater, 405 Main Street in North Little Rock, with the screenings there on Aug. 27, 28 and 29.
Thirteen teams are currently signed up. Teams who register before Aug. 1 pay an entry fee of $140. The registration fee after that is $160. For more info on entering and rules, visit the Little Rock 48 Hour Film Project website.
