Over the past few weeks, I've had the pleasure of running the 24-Hour Film Royal with some of my favorite filmmaking peers. During the event proper, we visited most of the teams at the various stages of production and filmed a behind-the-scenes documentary. The result became a thank you to the participants, and a love letter to the local filmmaking community.

In 2007, I entered the first 24-Hour Film Competition and met a lot of my best friends and frequent collaborators.
