It’s that time of the year again…

You know? Where we grab a bunch of EMP’ers and friends, team up with the 48HFP, and create a bizarre, perimeters-laden short film in less than 48 hours. We’ll probably be posting weirdo ramblings on Twitter @empcollective.

This was us last year:


This year, we’re teaming up with some friends new and old to create a new God-knows-what film. In the next week, we’ll be doing location scouting for potential shoot sites and preparing for, well, anything. For those unfamiliar, the 48HFP gives each crew a genre, line, and prop that must be included in their film. After receiving your specifications, you have from Friday, 7PM until about Sunday 7PM to write, shoot, edit, and finish a short film. Here’s the team so far (sadly missing our German friend, Leon, from Project Plase!):

Here’s a taste of what sleep deprivation can create (Who are we kidding? Sleep deprivation is just an excuse for our weirdness):
