48 Hour Film Project 2018


Over the summer, 9 Desert Academy students elected to forego sleep for 48 hours to produce a film for the Albuquerque 48 Hour Film Project 2018. Our team film, The Great 48, is now viewable online at the following link:


The Great 48 was produced by students at Desert Academy for the 48 Hour Film Project, an annual, international film festival where participants have 48 contiguous hours to write, shoot, edit, and deliver a film, according to a specified genre and a handful of prescribed elements. The
film was subsequently screened at the KiMo Theater in downtown Albuquerque to a packed house. Our team was comprised of a good mix of students from both middle and high schools, including members of the 2 year Diploma Programme Film class, who have chosen to focus on film analysis and filmmaking during their junior and senior years. This was Desert Academy’s fifth 48HFP event.
