48-hr Film Project - Viewing!


The Plaza Cinema Cafe
155 S Orange Ave
Orlando, FL 32801
Aug 26 2010 6:00a

It's been another successful year of the 48 hour film project and it's time check them out and find a winner!

What is the 48 hour film project, you ask?

Each year, hundreds of locals get together to write, shoot, edit, and produce a 4 to 7 minute movie over well...48 hours. Teams gathered at Oviedo High School Friday night to get their film genre. It could be from anywhere to drama to thriller to comedy to mockumentary or even romance. From there they were off on a mad dash to meet the 7:30 PM deadline Sunday evening.

Please join us Thursday, August 26th at 6 PM at the Plaza Cinema Café in downtown Orlando to see all the fantastic films on the big screen!


About Me

John Bonaccorso
The sea and surf brought me here, but the people kept me here. I love meeting new people and learning from them. While I have trouble writing wonderful, insightful and brief statements of my incredible talents, including my ability to drive a speeding car while blindfolded, I will try.......... My experience as a lifetime entrepreneur, tempered with more than 25 years as either senior manager or CEO of my own companies, has earned me a unique ability to assist new companies, new CEO's or even the new entrepreneur who just has a new idea, in determining the best path to success. I truly enjoy chatting with up and coming business leaders.

Want more films made in Florida?

Good luck with that. Someone on Facebook named Robert Spencer created "a group to inspire film makers and investors to do more than just think about making films here in Florida". I believe the operative word is think. Robert would like to see action, and as of this post, so do nearly 700 others. Filmmakers in Florida have some great opportunities, and this group is intended to highlight funding, I suppose.

I bet we can find 1,000,000+ people who want more films made in Florida

With the Florida Film Festival coming up soon, there could be some opportunities to meet the right people and make some awesome things happen.
