Amarillo, TX - When we first told you about the Amarillo 48 Hour Film Project, only 4 teams signed up. But now 10 are competing and all short films have been submitted for judging.
Teams had just two days to write, film, and edit a short film. The requirements are to include the use of a pencil, a specific line of dialogue, and a specific character name.
NewsChannel 10 caught up with one team who says they are confident over what they have accomplished in 48 hours and are happy they received this opportunity to put their skills to the test.
Jayne McBride, who is an actress in one of the teams says this is great for artist in the community."We need to take advantage of as many opportunities as we can take and it also give a sense of friendly competition," said McBride.
This event brought teams from Lubbock and Dumas.
Organizers say because this first project went so well, there will be a second Amarillo 48 Hour Film Project in the Spring.
If you'd like to see the completed films, there will be a screening on August 26th at the West Texas A&M University Theater at 7 p.m.
Tickets are 10 dollars.
