A couple of weeks after participating for the 5th year in Greensboro’s 48 Hour Film Festival, I have to confess to very mixed feelings about the experience. I’ve always had some mixed feelings as I love the process of making a film in 48 Hours and love the people I do it with every year, but the screenings and then the awards take the shine off it. This year was the worst year yet for it.
It’s hard to put into words, so I made a short video essay that I think applies both to this year’s fest and to much of filmmaking in general.[flv:http://www.outsideinthemovie.com/media/gratitiousviolence.flv 448 252]
