Covid-19 And The Free Stuck At Home 48HFF

Stuck At Home 48

A special challenge from the 48HFP

It’s free and it’s online—and you can do it from the safety of your own home.

Like you, we’d rather be making films than being quarantined at home avoiding COVID-19. While we make our plans for the regular 48 Hour Film Project in your city later this year, we have a series of three film challenges for you, if you wish to participate.

Each Friday evening, we will send an email to all of the registered teams with a Secret Challenge that will test your creativity and ingenuity. You can make your film alone, with other people who live in your home, or you may team up remotely. (Remember—no group gatherings!)

The Stuck At Home 48 will have a different Secret Challenge each weekend:

  • March 27-29
  • April 3-5
  • April 17-19

There is no cost to participate. When you register, you will be enrolled to receive the “Stuck at Home 48” creative brief by email each Friday. An email will also include instructions on where to upload your finished video.

High School 48 Short Script Project

Finally, we have information on a writing contest that is specifically for high school age kids. It’s the High School 48 Short Script Project. Registration includes access to special filmmaking tutorials.

Please pass this on to any high school students you know:

We hope you will join us for the Stuck at Home 48.

Have fun. Be safe. Make movies!
