CHANGE OF PLANS - A single mother comes home to find that her infant daughter has been kidnapped. But all things are not as they seem when she decides to take justice in to her own hands.

We took part in the 48 Hour Film Project for 2011. Our entry in to the competition is a film about kidnapping, double-coss and murder - and I think it came out better than we expected.

For anyone not familair with the 48 Hour Film Project, it is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie - write, shoot, edit and score it - in just 48 hours.

On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Then it will show at a local theater, usually in the next week.

The Genre we randomly selected was "Film de Femme" - Basically, any movie we wanted to make, as long as it featured a strong female lead.

The assigned Character was Bob (or Bobbi) West, a babysitter.
The assigned Prop was a flip-flop.
The assigned Line of Dialog was "I have a funny feeling about this."

On this project, I think we have finally nailed down a team that works. CHANGE OF PLANS was, by far, the most professional shoot of which I have been a part. Our team ran like a well oiled machine - from the starting gun, straight through to the delivery of the film to the judges.
