In 2012, 2013, and 2014, I participated with a group of guys and girls in the Indianapolis 48 Hour Film Festival (a competition in which you only have 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film). It’s a major group effort, but I contributed all audio elements (production and post) and managed a lot with producing and filming. We’ve been fortunate to take home a suite of awards including best film for several years. Here are our submissions:
Winner for Best Picture, Best Directing, Best Writing, Best Use of Line
