as part of the 48hour film festival, which started on friday the 20th at 5pm, i did not sleep for 59hours.
59 hours without sleep, makes you crazy.
you become a sleep deprived zombie, but then 20 minutes later you're running around screaming the lyrics to "Friday".
for those of you who have no idea what i'm talking about, i'll explain. my school does media studies as a subject for all year 12 and 13 students. these students have the chance to enter a nation wide film festival, which begins at 5pm on the friday and all films must be entered in by 7pm on the sunday. for those three days, all of us live in H block at our school, and for those who want be become a spartan (this is just for our school) you do not sleep. it is also sponsored by the energy drink 'V', supplying you with endless amounts to keep your mind, and sometimes body, awake.
a lot of amazing things happened in those 48 hours, for example; 2 sleep walking boys getting caught on camera, having conversations with people you don't remember, running up and down a staircase to keep yourself awake, completely trashing one of the school art rooms, visiting mc donalds multiple times between the hours of 1 and 6am, doing skids in the school van, crying because someone threw a lolly at your eye, unlocking one of the classrooms to create your own dance party, laughing at those people who have fallen asleep, drawing on those people who have fallen asleep, prank calling everyone, becoming a spartan! and last but not least - actually creating a 7 minute film and entering it proudly into the competition.
that was definitely a weekend to remember ;3
