I'm spending this weekend making a movie for the 48 Hour Film Project, and I couldn't be happier to report that both unicorns AND glitter are involved. But that's really all I can say.
The rules are simple. You show up on Friday and draw for a genre. Genres include things you might expect, like romance, western, etc. But they also include some unexpected things, like the genre we got this year - birthday or anniversary. Each genre comes with a required line of dialogue, a character and a prop that have to be incorporated into the film. So our line of dialogue is "Don't tell me what to do," our character is a soccer coach and our prop is a purse. With this info, you may then start working on the film - writing a script, getting actors, filming, editing, etc. until it's time to turn the movie in on Sunday evening.
It's like a card challenge on crack. This is our fourth one, I think, and we have learned a lot each time. I highly recommend doing it at least once. It will really make you appreciate even the very simplest things that happen in Hollywood flicks, I promise.
It also makes you really appreciate how much control you have over something like... stamping! :)
I made today's card for the All Things Unity Challenge #34
To make the butterflies, I used a secret technique that I will show you if you plan on stopping by the Splitcoaststampers booth at CHA next month! :) I will post a tutorial after the show, but if you are going to be in Chicago, please stop by and say hello and see it in real life!
After I made the secret blue prettiness background, I stamped the butterfly from the February 2011 KOTM on it and cut them out. I love nothing more than cutting out a little flutterby and popping her wings up off a card. It's cosmic! To top off their loveliness, the butterflies have little pearl antennae. The greeting is from the March 2011 KOTM.
I think these little butterflies DO believe they can fly. So do I. :)
Got butterflies? Play along!! I'd love to see what you make, and I'd love it even more if you won all that Plaid Mod Podge-y goodness! We could have used some Mod Podge on the set today!
