We're less than 48 hours away from the kick off of this weekend's 48 Hour Film Project - are you registered?  

Event producers Kerri and Coco Bermudez share the top fifteen reasons to make a 48 hour film - 
15. You dare to dream big and want to prove it.
14. It's fun to laugh at sleep-deprived friends.
13. By Sunday evening, you'll have a film of your own and we'll pop it on the big screen.
12. You might have the Best Film of Tampa-St. Petersburg and win Movie Magic software.
11. You have a growing desire to help support the coffee industry.
10. You'll challenge yourself and push past your normal boundaries.
09. You could be screening at Filmapalooza where you'll receive a snazzy trophy.
08. What else are you going to do? Clean your garage?!?
07. It's a wild roller coaster weekend of fun.
06. Your film might screen at Cannes Film Festival.
05. Studies suggest it's less painful than a root canal.
04. It's a great way to meet other filmmakers to collaborate with.
03. You could make the Best Film of the world-wide 2010 48 Hour Film Project and win $3000 & GenArts Sapphire, the gold standard for visual effects ($1700 value)!
02. Who needs sleep anyway?
01. You call tell everyone that you had a better weekend than they did!!

The films will be screened at Channelside Cinemas on Wednesday, July 21, 2010. Group A screens at 630pm and Group B kicks off at 900pm. Tickets are $10 (CASH ONLY). Get there early as the theater typically sells out.

Good luck to everyone participating in this weekend's competition. I can't wait to see your work on the big screen next week. Stay tuned for more Tampa Bay film related things to do in Tampa Bay!
