Hi Filmies! We were really looking forward to our potluck this Saturday, but unfortunately we think it’s best to postpone this event until January. Why? Well, in case you haven’t heard, I’m pregnant and it looks like baby may show up earlier than expected. We won’t set a new date until after baby is delivered, so we have a realistic expectation of recovery length. An email will be sent out with the new date for the potluck as soon as possible. So, stay tuned! Follow our 2nd home water birth on my website. In the meantime, I encourage you to check out our sponsor, the Austin 48 Hour Film Project. Their latest news is below. We hope all of you have a wonderful holiday!

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie – write, shoot, and edit – in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in – and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families.
Conceived in 2001, the 48 Hour Film Project has been active in Austin, Texas, since 2002! Now, over 30,000 films later, the 48 Hour Film Project has become a rite of passage for filmmakers around the world.
* More than 900 competitions have taken place around the world!
* More than 30,000 short films made!
* More than 390,000 filmmakers have taken part!
* Nine special screenings at the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner!
* More than $800,000 in cash and prizes awarded to filmmakers!
