Instant Films: Making movies in 48 hours

If you’re in the LA area tonight, consider dropping by LA Center Studios to check out Films, an intriguing film festival / contest in which filmmakers are given 48 hours to go from concept to finished product.
The contestants were given a story idea Thursday night, submitted their scripts yesterday, and by now should be putting the finishing touches on their films for presentation tonight. And yes, they’re blogging the experience (natch).
Tickets are $10 online and the event is at the LA Center Studios on 450 S. Bixel.
An old friend is competing in this evening’s edition, and it sounds like a blast. I unfortunately can’t make it, but that shouldn’t stop you!
