So I've been keeping my head down for the last couple of weeks because I've been so crazy busy with work in the real world. And I haven't had a free weekend since forever (and no, my birthday does NOT count because it's a birthday) and this passed one was no different... Except that it was. Team 1.77:1 made an incredible little movie for the 48 Hour Film Project and I would just like to show off a few screen grabs of our amazing cast.
When me and @markstry went to the drawing of the genre on Friday night for the kickoff we were in no way prepared for comedy as a genre. Drama yes, thriller yes, action yes even horror yes. But comedy, really not. And as the luck would have it, @markstry being the very first to draw, drew a comedy! Whilst eyes were beginning to brim with tears, deep breaths were taken and a script was beaten out just in time for the 20h00 call time for the first night shoot.
This film couldn't have been done without the complete support and dedication of our team and to them we are truly thankful! Hopefully we haven't scared them away from doing more projects with us :)
Please follow Lobola Run on twitter for updates on dates for screenings and other cool stuff. In the meantime, diarise 17 - 20 September @ Killarney Mall's Cinecentre!
