High School 48 Short Script Project April 17th-19thTuesday, March 31, 2020


Do you have a high school age budding filmmaker or screenwriter in your life? Then the High School 48 is the perfect launching pad for their future career in film! 

It’s the place for students who want to make movies. Whether you are an experienced filmmaker or just getting started, the High School 48 is your opportunity to learn more and to show off your creativity.

The HS48's first upcoming event is the High School 48 Short Script Project, this April 17th-19th.

The Short Script Project challenges you to write a script (10 pages max) for a short film. What’s the catch? You only have 48 hours to do it. We’ll give you guidance on what makes a good short film, and we’ll assign you a genre, a character, a prop and a line of dialogue that you must work into your script.

With your registration, you receive access to:

  • "How to Write a Killer 48 Hour Film Screenplay" ebook
  • Script formatting guidelines
  • 3 video tutorials on story development and Three Act Structure

First prize is a $250 and a copy of Movie Magic Screenwriter Software.
