Seeking help from the #OBX community with possible filming locations, props, actors, and various other resources for their planned shoot this Saturday, August 4th.
After their success at last year's Hampton Roads 48 Hour Film Project, with Icarian Productions short film "Let's Go" (video below), they've decided to once again form an #OuterBanks team to bring home "Best Picture." But they need your help...
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which a team has to write, shoot and edit a short film in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat, and are then given a character, prop and a line to include in their films. On Sunday night, the films are turned in, and later screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families.
This year’s Outer Banks team will again be comprised of Theatre of Dare regulars, led by local acting favorite Stuart Parks II and the award-winning director of “Lost In Buffalo City,” Raymond Wallace, and will be filmed at locations yet to be determined.
“Since we have no idea what our film will be about until Friday night, it’s hard to nail down the types of locations and assets that we’ll need to help tell our story. So we want to invite the greater Dare County community to help us out,” said Wallace.
The Outer Banks team, who are operating under the banner of Wallace’s Manteo-based production company Rayolight Productions, is seeking help from the community with possible filming locations, props, actors and various other resources for the shoot which will take place on Saturday, August 4th.
“We’re looking for places such as an office, a restaurant, a warehouse, or even a boat, that we can possibly use as a filming location. We’re looking for extras if needed, and of course if any local restaurants wanted to help provide the cast and crew with lunch, we certainly wouldn’t turn that down,” joked Wallace.
It's a mad, furious whirlwind, and generally a lot of fun.
So, if you're keen to help out, email them at info@rayolightproductions and they'll add you to our list.
