This weekend, North by Northwest Productions held its first-ever summer edition of the 48-Hour Film Festival, in which entrants are challenged to conceive, shoot and edit an entire film — using supplied prompts — in exactly 48 hours.
The results of the contest, which ended on Sunday night, have yet to be announced, but below is our favorite film so far. Directed by former Spokeskman-Review photographer Rajah Bose (whose breathtaking "Exposure" film won two awards at the last 48-hour competition), "Scraps" is beautifully filmed and originally conceived — putting to good use the production company's three requirements: a location with brick; a blanket and some motor oil; and the line "She took him. I knew this was going to happen."
