Filipino wins New York competition for fast filmmaking
Some epic films take years to complete. Then there are the 24-hour wonders.
Paolo Dy proved that a worthy movie can be produced in just one day.
The Manila-based filmmaker and commercial director won Best Overall Film and three other awards in the 2010 US National 24 Hour Film Race Competition with his two-minute film, “Creative License.”
Apart from winning first place, the film won the Best Direction, Best Sound Design and Audience’s Choice at the annual film race.
The competition is proof that today’s digital tools can shorten nearly every creative process, without necessarily sacrificing quality. Filmmaking used to be a laborious, time-consuming and expensive craft. By dumping fresh digital footage in a computer, a film can be edited on the fly these days.
