Feature Films in (a little more than) 12 Hours
In Dublin, Spanish filmmaker Paco Torres (The Magic of Hope) has just wrapped a new feature film called Saol (an Irish word for "life")... in exactly fourteen hours and one minute.
Torres made the film as part of a new concept called Whisper Film Projects in which filmmakers try to wrap features in 12 hours. The film is reportedly about "anxiety, obsessions and reconstruction of a family after the loss of a family member." Using only a concept and improvisation, Torres came close to the goal, but didn't quite make it. Who's next??
