Recent weeks have confirmed two things: 1) Amanda Bynes has a sketchy handle on reality, and 2) Hollywood movies are creatively bankrupt products in which box office-friendly sequels trump everything else. Enter the 48 Hour Film Project, a crafty, DIY extravaganza that celebrates creativity over commerce.
Cincinnati is again part of a worldwide endeavor — a record 125 cities are taking part this year — in which filmmaking teams write, shoot and edit films over a single weekend.
The resulting shorts — which inevitably range greatly in style and tone — will be screened Sunday in three different groups (1:30, 4:15 and 7:30 p.m.) at the Thompson House in Newport. Tickets are $10 per screening group.
