The 48 Hour Film Project kicks off tonight at 7:00 PM. Filmmakers and their crews all over the metro Detroit area, Ann Arbor and beyond will then spend the next 48 hours writing, filming and editing their films by Sunday night.

The 48 Hour Film projects looks really cool. Looking forward to seeing the final pieces.

I love my friends at the DIA too but I'm rooting for the DPL. I hope you don't get rained out.
