The 48 Hour Film Project
a film festival for 4,000 films in 100 cities
Tools used for the 48 Hour Film Project website:
Running an annual film festival of 4,000 films in 100 cities with just 4 full-time staff is no easy task, but technology can make it much easier. As the Chief Technology Officer and Technical Lead for the 48 Hour Film Project, I transformed a static, 30 page site into a 600-page, interactive, database-backed, e-commerce website.
For "behind the scenes" I created a 100-user, 200-page intranet including a content management system, database management and reports, database-integrated and timed-delivery mass emails, a calendar of worldwide events, syllabi, blogs, photo approval workflow, and automation of many common tasks.
I left full-time work at the 48HFP in 2011, but the infrastructure I built is still up and running at 48hourfilm.com
