    from Jarod Octon Added 158 4 0

    On June 3, 2012 fellow students, alumni and I competed in the 48 Hour Film Festival. With less than a weekend available, the goal was to create a short film no longer than 7 minutes from scratch. Prior to competition kick off, teams were given a genre at random. All of the competitors had to use the same prop (cell phone), name (Gary or Gretta Greenberg) and line of dialogue ("Where are we going?") that was assigned by the producers of the festival. As a team everyone juggled jobs, but specifically I was in charge of all the visual effects and graphic design work. This film also put us in the "2012 Best of San Diego" for the 48 Hour Film Festival.
