Entering and Winning the Barrow Group 48 Hour Film Fest!

We had a blast taking part in the Barrow Group 48 Hour Film Fest! It was an amazing filmmaking experience that took place over the course of three days in NYC. 

For the festival, writers work with a prompt given at 7pm on a Friday then have until 6am the next day to turn in a script. Film teams then are given their script and have until 5pm Sunday to shoot and edit their films. To wrap up the weekend and the festival, there are two screenings at 7pm and 9pm at Barrow Group's Theatre. The audience votes on an Audience Award Winner after each screening. 

We were happy to hear after the 9pm screening with all of the votes tallied that our film won the festival as the Audience Award Winner!

Collaborating with Christian Pulisic and Univision for the first ever Prospects Cup

This Summer we had the opportunity to team up with U.S. Soccer Men's National team member, Christian Pulisic, and Univision creating content for the first ever Prospects Cup! 

We had a great time shooting with Pulisic for the day in Hoboken, New Jersey at Frank Sinatra Park. Along with Christian, a local NJ soccer team that competed in the Prospects Cup joined us and was a part of the content creation. 

Huge thanks to all of those that helped set everything in motion!

Below are a few videos created for the tournament's initial social push on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram:
