The 2010 Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project Registration and Auditions Are Nearing

Director Patrick Barry Auditions
Registration is now open for the 2010 Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project. Anyone of any skill level can participate to see if they can create the best short film in only 48 hours, one weekend. The competition begins on Friday, June 18th at the Jacksonville Landing at 7:00pm when each team will learn the Prop, Character, and Line of Dialog each film must have, as well as draw a genre their film has to be in the style of. They then have 48 hours to write, produce, shoot, edit, score, and render a 4 to 7 minute short film. All films must be turned in by 7:30pm on Sunday, June 20, in order to be considered "On Time".

People interested in creating a team, can register their team by going to and clicking the "Register for Jacksonville Now" link. Registration is only $135.00 until Monday, May 24, when the Early Bird registration ends. After that, it goes up to $155.00. There are 36 spaces for teams allotted and 14 have already been registered. NOTE: when registering your team is sure to select whether or not you and your team will consign to making a PG-13 or cleaner "Family Friendly" film, "an R-rated Film" or "do not care". The first 15 teams that commit to a PG-13 or cleaner film will be put into the Screening Group for Wednesday, June 23, which will be publicize as "Family Friendly Screening Night".

Anyone concerned in volunteering to be a part of the films cast or crew should go to and click the "join a Jacksonville team" link at the bottom of the page. Team Leaders will be getting access to this database of local crew and cast in the next week and will be able to contact you about their film. Or you can come to one of our Two Meet & Greet Parties at River City Brewing Company. Actors, be sure to come on out to the 2010 Jacksonville 48 Hour Film Project Open Casting Call at the 5Pts. Theatre on Monday, May 24.
