Thirteen teams of Boiseans spent last weekend hauling lighting gear around the city while drenched in fake blood as part of the first-ever H48 filmmaking competition.
It is a spinoff of the popular i48 competition, in which contestants write, shoot, edit and deliver a five- to seven-minute film in the space of 48 hours. The main difference is that this competition relaxed the rules to allow horror and R-rated material.
BW followed two teams around as they worked on the films to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the process. While some of it is the sort of stuff you expect in behind-the-scenes footage, some of it would be considered a felony in 47 states.
All of the finished films will be screened at the Country Club Reel Theater at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, after which there will be awards for Best Scream Queen, Best Special Effects, Best Film and Audience Pick.
