The 48 Hour Film Project will return to Detroit this weekend, July 18 through the 21, and right now, teams are gearing up to compete against each other in the 48-hour race against the clock!
Meet Chris Chynoweth – video editor and director for Beast – one of the country’s top editorial facilities for commercials, music videos, and web virals. He’s one of the most sought-after music video editors in the Metro Detroit area, and CW50 had the chance to sit down and chat with him about our great city!
“What goes on inside the haunted house BEFORE the family moves in?” That’s the tagline for the new film, written by local musician and author Josh Malerman. The film is set to shoot this summer in Detroit, with a team of local filmmakers.

Colin’s new project, “John Panich Is Dead,” is a short film shot in the style of a music video, and it follows the new song from local artist John Panich, entitled “My Asteroid Wants to Kill Your Planet.”
‘Tis the season for film! With all those fancy Hollywood film celebrations happening, we thought we could shine a light on what’s going on in our community… so film fans, rejoice! CW50 is here for you, once again.
Lately, “The Z” has captured all the buzz – a massive, ten-story, “Z”-shaped parking structure, retail center, and art gallery which recently opened its doors to the public last week. Personally, I believe the most impressive features of this structure are the paint-covered interior walls, showcasing the work of twenty-seven international artists who worked day and night to make this vision a reality. A team of local filmmakers – including Sean “Seabright” Jackson, Jon Braue, and Joe Talbot – had the opportunity to capture an amazing series of moments.
CW50 had the chance to catch up with Jessica Golden – she’s the producer on the film Los Wild Ones – to hear about the festival, the multi-award winner and nominated documentary film, and why Detroit is important to her. Los Wild Ones premiered earlier this year at the 2013 Documentary Competition at South by Southwest. The film makes its premiere in Detroit with the Uptown Film Festival.
Imagine this: a horror movie, shot in 45 days, here in Metro Detroit, by the hands of local talented filmmakers…all on a budget of $700. Sounds pretty crazy, right? The film titled “Stranger” was put together by a small group of ambitious, local filmmakers with a love for filmmaking. They combined their passion with a very small budget and transformed it into a film that showcases the talent that Metro Detroit possesses.
