Are You Prepared For A Frog Fall?

This August, Portland’s 48 Hour Film Project will return.

To get you geared up in the interim, I bring you inspiration from Springfield, MO, the home of SATO48 (and our friends @OzarksRedCross!). The concept is similar in both locales — in Springfield, you’ve got just 48 hours to script, film and edit a five-minute gem.

So, without further ado, I give you 9-year-old writer/director Damian’s entry into this year’s contest (note that this is actually his third time entering with his sister). He worked with the @OzarksRedCross team to create a funny film with a serious message about disaster preparedness. And — if you listen closely — you’ll hear our favorite catchphrase: Be Prepared For Anything!
Here’s the clever film…I assure you that you’ll never look at frogs the same way again.

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled for some of the other SATO48 ground rules:

1. You must have a sound at the beginning and end of the fil
2. You must use the SATO48 poster once in original form and once altered.
3. The turning point must involve a “Shadow.”
4. You must include the numbers; 1,2,3,4 and 5 in that sequence throughout the film.

One thought on “Are You Prepared For A Frog Fall?

  • Thank you very much for taking an interest in the work of my children! Damian is very serious about preparedness in the movie as well as real life. He takes care of our family and has several plans for different scenarios!

    On a side note, the SATO48 is open to all ages, and with 96 entries this year, it has really taken off. Sadly, they do not have a child specific category, so Damian is up against some serious professionals! He loves it regardless.

    Thanks again for taking an interest!

    -A proud Dad.
