Production History: It’s A Thing

This short film was made in 24 hours at the 2014 MAFIA Day (Make A Film In A Day) Competition sponsored by Austin School of Film and SXSW Film Festival. Teams of 4-5 students attend the competition at a ‘lock-in’ at a high school campus in Austin, TX. Upon arrival, each team must draw a genre and then select a prop that must be prominently featured in the film project. Teams have 24 hours to write, film and edit a short film (max 5 min).

The It’s A Thing Team drew Romantic Comedy as their genre and an Orange Swim Mask as their prop. In March 2014, 18 teams competed and It’s A Thing was selected Best Film.

About SXSW:
Started in 1987, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early each year in mid-March in Austin, Texas. SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.
