Locally Made H48 Horror Films Screen Saturday

by

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.
