fused (2008)

The Fyzz is delighted to announce that its latest short film, FUSED, has been awarded the top prize at the prestigious 48 Hour Film Project, being named Best Film – London 2008.

The six-minute short is a slick and engaging nugget of cinematic excellence, revolving around the humorous and unexpected events facing a group of friends at a dinner party when the power keeps cutting out.

‘FUSED’ was judged Best Film by respected members of the industry including James King (BBC), Tricia Tuttle (BAFTA) and Briony Hanson (Script Factory). The film also received three more awards: Best Ensemble Cast, Best Use of Line and The Audience Award, making it the most bestowed film of the competition.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend during which teams of filmmakers have to write, shoot, edit and score a movie in just 48 hours. The competition is the oldest and largest timed film competition in the world. Since its conception in Washington DC seven years ago, over 7,000 teams have participated across 70 cities. The competition format is simple: on Friday night you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all of which need to be included in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Then it is shown at a local theatre and judged by the general public and a round table of industry judges.
