This is the time of year when summer is approaching and that means the start of the 48 Hour Film Project season. In years past I have participated on many different levels from bit player to team leader. This year I will be stepping into a new role: judge. One one of the screening nights, I will be able to evaluate and grade the films shown. This should be a lot of fun and very different experience.
I've also been working on setting up a screening of the Manhattan Short Film Festival in September. This event takes place worldwide over the course of 4 or 5 days. The same films are shown in various cities around the world, voted on, and then the winner is announced on the final day of the event. It's pretty neat to be involved with organzing an event of that nature. Still doesn't compare to the ball-busting, back-breaking extravaganza that is organizing SLIFF.
