Episode Forty-Three: 48 Hour Film Project
The 48 Hour Film Project, which is the world’s biggest timed filmmaking competition in which you and your team get a genre and 3 elements (character, prop, line of dialogue) to make a movie – write, shoot, edit, score and get it in the can – in 48 hours. After catching up on sleep, watch your completed film on the silver screen in a local theater!
Join us as we speak to Jeanette Di Pinza, who represents The 48 Hour Film Project in the Inland Empire and Scott Baker, the filmmaker whose film Rationed was 2nd runner-up in the world finals of 48 Hour Film Project, aka, Filmapalooza as part of the NAB Show in Las Vegas. The film was also selected for a showcase at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival (Short Film Corner: Marche du Film).
Jeanette Di Pinza- Festival Coordinator/Producer
Full Filipino yet Guam born and -raised Jeanette Di Pinza joined the Temecula Valley International Film & Music Festival as a staff member in 2008, and although still staff, she has successfully weaned herself from many duties in the pursuit of more sleep, less stress, and a chance to do other film-related activities. Jeanette dabbles in filmmaking – mainly as a screenwriter, producer or anonymous crew member – but is making her directorial debut with a short film that will finally see principal photography at the end of 2010.
Scott Baker- Filmmaker
Scott Baker, a native of Northern California, received a degree in History from Sonoma State University and served in the United States Peace Corps from 2000-2001 in Turkmenistan. He co-founded Vegan Cannibals Productions with Philip Stimmell in 2002. Their first film, Brunch of the Dead was a feature-length zombie-comedy. Since re-locating to Riverside they have done several award-winning short films, including Rationed which screened at this year’s Cannes Short Film Corner and 2 episodes for their new series Findings (think Ghosthunters meets Reno911!).
