CUFF 48 Hour Movie Making Challenge: Badlands

Over the weekend of April 3rd, 24 teams set out on a movie-making adventure to create a short film in only 48 hours. The fun and games was all part of the annual Calgary Underground Film Festival.

Hopefully these guys can find a new gig hosting karaoke night at the local pub. I’ll even buy them a pint.
