“In only seven minutes, ‘Sweetie’ tells a suspenseful story with a gripping ending. The
main character, expertly played by Chad Brummet, is a compelling character in an unusual situation,” said 48 Hour Film Project’s Liz Langston. “The team’s decision to shoot the film in just one location was astute, leaving them time to craft a strong story, told with expert cinematic imagery,” she said.
In February, “Sweetie” was named 2nd runner up at the 48 Hour Film Project’s annual Filmapalooza competition at Cinequest in San Jose, CA, beating over 60 other city winners and more than 2,200 total films from around the world. It was the highest placing American film of 2007.

About 48 Hour Film Project:
The 48 Hour Film Project 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.
In 2007, some 30,000 filmmakers made films in 55 cities around the world.
