"Doommates" 48 Hour Film Project - Atlanta 2009

Each year in Atlanta teams of professional filmmakers donate their time to create a film short for a competition called the “48 Hour Film Project”. This year approximately 70 teams registered for the project which began at 7:00 p.m on Friday June 26 and ended at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday June 28. This photo essay documents the people and processes involved in making a successful film for the “48 Hour Film Project”.

I joined the team from Drake Films, LLC in Alpharetta, Georgia to follow them on their quest to create a film as dictated by the parameters handed down to them by the competition management. Their job was to film a seven minute “Buddy Film” with a character named Alan, who is a transit company worker, and they must also use art supplies as a prop (a second character named Bob was added by the team as Alan’s artist roommate). The team also was required to use the line “I think I can do it” somewhere in the plot.

The team developed “Doommates”, a film about two roommates and how they cope with each other when Alan (who is obnoxious) gets furloughed from his transit company job and begins spending more time at home with his roommate Bob (an artist who likes and needs peace and quiet).
