48h Brisbane Film Festival

The 48hr Brisbane Film Festival is an annual event where filmmaking teams have one weekend to make a short film. All creativity—writing, shooting, editing, and adding a musical soundtrack—must occur in a 48-hour window beginning Friday evening at 7:00pm and ending Sunday at 7:00pm. 

This year’s required elements were: a character called Kira, a capsicum prop, and the line “You’d have liked him/her, too.”

My role in the team (Darklight Creative) was to capture the BTS (video and photos).

Darklight Creative won Best Film of 2021, Best Editing & Best Use of Prop. “Fertiliser” will go on to represent Brisbane against all the other city winners around the world at Filmapalooza 2022.
