In October, 2003 I got together with several friends to participate in the 48 hour film project. At that time it was a fairly new idea that pushed filmmakers to write, shoot, and edit a short film within a weekend. The festival supplied you with a list of specific instructions (as described in the opening sequence) that we, as participants, had to include in our film.
We received our instructions on a Friday evening, and about 15 people deliberated for hours late into the night what the film should be. I ended up writing a script in an hour during the wee hours early that next morning. Then our group shot for about 19 hours Saturday, editing all day on Sunday and showed the film THAT evening to an enthusiastic packed house in San Francisco.
This version here features a different opening scene which was added a few months later to let a completely different packed house audience in on the know that "this is not any ordinary story".
