Ground Zero was the first film created by our team for the 48 Hour Film Project in Portland, OR. Looking back, technically it was rough, but story wise it was one of my very favorite. The team was fantastic and we had a lot of fun. Although we did not win any prizes, we were invited back to screen in the "Best of Portland."
