The 48 Hour Film Project based out of Somerville happening next weekend June 2-4. This is our 13th time doing the film sprint. We have a need for a Composer and Lighting Person who can join our team.

The 48 Hour film project is a film sprint/race returning to Boston for its 14th year. We are assigned a prop, character, line of dialogue, and genre on Friday night @ 7pm. Before then, no creative work can occur. We brainstorm as a team before the writers generate 2-3 possibly stories. Again as a team, we try to quickly zero in on our story. The writers will then generate a draft for team review before crafting the final story.

The Composer would be responsible for understanding the emotional elements of the story starting as early as an outline of the story without a finished script. Working with the Director to understand how the compositions & score will help to tell the story being displayed visually and to begin to develop compositions to support that. The real heavy lifting is late Saturday into Sunday afternoon where work can be finalized and aligned with a locked picture. The works will be all married together and become part of the final product turned in early Sunday evening. It is a huge bonus if this person has Sound Design/Foley experience as well to really bring our movie to life.

The Composer must be able to work long hours Saturday into Sunday (taking breaks as needed) in order to complete the project within the 48 Hour time period.

It’s a very challenging sprint, but our final product will screen the following Thursday @ 9:30 PM at the Somerville Theater in Davis Sq, Somerville MA! We don't know what yet though! From inception, to shooting, to editing the whole weekend’s project will be seen by a Sold Out audience the very next week!

Part of the rules of the competition are that all team members must be unpaid. If you find this opportunity uniquely challenging, please reach out to me below and I'd be happy to answer any and all questions.
