I've never been involved with a 48 Hour Competition. Anything I should know?
Get to know your team before hand. Do not push yourself or anyone else further than any one person can go-- remember to take breaks, stay hydrated, eat, and sleep. Write something you can actually film; film as effeciently as possible; leave time to edit. Planning and scheduling is a key to success in this competition.
