DETROIT (WWJ) – They had 48 hours to create a short film from start to finish and now you can vote for your favorite. Universities across the nation were given a category, a line of dialogue, a character and a prop to be incorporated into the final production of the film.
Called “48-Go Green” the University of Michigan- Dearborn took part in the project and created a film called “Cry the New Forest.”
“We were also given a line of dialogue, a character, and a prop. So we had to incorporate all of those elements into our screen play that we had to write that very night because we couldn’t do any sort of pre-planning when you don’t know what it’s going to be about,” says producer of the film and U of M-Dearborn Senior Danni Gilshire.
“It chronicles the journey of one of the last trees on earth as two women try to save it and get it replanted. And it follows the path of the tree as it’s sort of drawn back, it’s called “Cry the New Forest” drawn back to where it can be regrown as a forest,” says Gilshire.
