Out Of My League (Short Film) | 48 Hour Film Project Philadelphia 2019

We were nominated for AND WON 2 awards at the 48 Hour Awards! Winner of the Audience Award (group A) and Best Use of Character! Our short film for the 2019 Philadelphia 48 Hour Film Project: Out Of My League. This is the slightly extended director's cut. The cut we wanted to submit, but couldn't since we had to shave almost a minute off the runtime to be eligible for the competition. Out Of My League follows Hannah, who enlists the help of her disgraced ex-Pool champion Uncle, to help her win her pool enthusiast ex-boyfriend back. The required elements for the 48 hour film were: Genre: Sports film or (action/adventure - which we didn't pick) Required character: Uncle George Required line of dialogue: Why'd you do that?
