That’s A Wrap!


As I shamble through the groggy, cracked-out, bleary-eyed, post-coital haze of this year’s 48 Hour Film Project, I am still floored by the gargantuan effort put in by everyone this weekend.  I remember being at our first 48 Hour Film Project screening and hearing a producer talk about all the help they had and their various crew teams and people sleeping in shifts – I thought he was out of his f***ing mind.  I’m still not sure I believe that sleeping in shifts actually happens during a 48 Hour Film project, but this year proved that when you have more people not sleeping, the results can be amazing!

Without an exact count, I’d guess that we had at least 6 people with 30+ hours in on this film and it shows!  As I said to a few of you on Saturday night, It’s been a tough year for the Pilotgroove family and I couldn’t help entering 48HrFP with some hesitation and a little bit of sadness.  But seeing people come out of the woodwork and kick ass to make it happen was awe-inspiring and humbling. 

Just Remember That They’re Dead is a monumental leap forward for Pilotgroove Pictures and I can’t thank you all enough.


If you don’t have plans this Wednesday night (June 15) – or hell, even if you do – come to Cinemagic in Hooksett for the 9 PM screening of Just Remember That They’re Dead.  It’s a great film!  Really, I’m not just saying that.  With so many people working so hard, I shouldn’t be surprised but I really can’t believe how good it is.  I know what I did and I was up for most of 48 hours so I saw saw what everyone else was doing, but I still don’t know where this movie came from.  We’ll have the film posted here in the near future so that everyone can see it, but it can’t replace the experience of seeing it in the theater.

I highly encourage you all to come to the screening, where you’ll see not just ours, but 14 other short films made with just 48 hours of caffeine and creativity.  If you’re so inclined, you could also join us at the 6:30 screening for 15 more (completely different) films.  If you don’t have a great time, you’re probably dead.

Back again for 48 more hours of filmmaking!

It’s that time of year again.  The 48 Hour Film Project returns to New Hampshire June 10-12 and Pilotgroove Pictures will make their third appearance in the annual event.  This year, we welcome in P.J. Huot (who you may remember as Dr. Clark Larson in last year’s film, The Table) to co-produce alongside Ben Peirce.  The crazy weekend of writing, shooting and editing begins on June 10 and the finished film will be screened theatrically on Wednesday, June 15 at 9:00 PM at Cinemagic in Hooksett, NH.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which filmmakers make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours.

On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Films are screened in local theaters following the event.

In 2010, nearly 40,000 filmmakers made 3,000 films in in 80 cities on five continents. This year, we’re even bigger, with filmmakers around the world taking the challenge to make a film in just 48 hours.
