48-Hour Film Project explores storytelling at nearly impossible speeds
(MILWAUKEE ) - The live-action remake of The Lion King opens in theaters July 19th. It's the final product of thousands of actors, producers, technical professionals and countless visual artists. The film has been in the works for more than 2 years and cost more than 100 million dollars to make.
On the opposite side of the spectrum are teams of filmmakers in Milwaukee and more than 130 cities worldwide dreaming of big screen success that write, direct and edit original films over the course of just two days. It’s part of a unique competition called the 48-Hour Film Project, a national organization of independent filmmakers who explore the nature of storytelling at breakneck speeds.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Michael Schlesinger put the 48-Hour Film Project in the Sunday Morning Spotlight.
