After placing in the top 10 films in last month’s 48 Hour Film Project Las Vegas, our team, K.T.F. Media Productions/Emerald Motion Pictures, was invited by New Amsterdam Vodka to be one of five film-making teams in Las Vegas to compete in their debut film competition. Five film-making teams in 25 cities across the US are being chosen to compete in creating a 3-5 minute short film in 48 hours. The goal of each film is to represent the filmmaker’s home city by breaking the city’s stereotypes and showing what else it has to offer. Each film must also include the line of dialogue, “It’s Your Town” and feature a bottle of New Amsterdam Vodka.

It was a huge challenge creating this film as we had only a few days notice so coming up with the talent, crew and locations was a difficult task. We had to have a plan B… and plan C. All in all, it came together, though not quite as planned, but I think we might a fun film that I’m sure folks will enjoy.

We will post the film once we have permission from the contest organizers. In the meantime, here are some fun, behind the scenes photos from our shoot.
