Modeled after the international 48 Hour Film Project, which hosts events all around the globe, the students of TheatreXpress are proud to produce their own TLU version—complete with one extra hour for good measure. Participation is open to all TLU community members and their network of family and friends. Beginning on a Friday evening, entrants will receive the basic parameters of the competition. You draw a genre from a hat. You’re assigned a required character, line of dialogue, and prop. The rest is up to you, as you make a movie in one intense weekend.
