Obnots is a team that has created a short movie for the Boston 48 Hour Film Project every year since 2004.  The 48 Hour Film Project is a worldwide filmmaking competition where teams have just 48 hours (Friday 7pm - Sunday 7pm) to make a 4 to 7 minute long movie. On Friday, each team draws a genre out of a hat and receives the required elements: the line of dialogue, prop, and character. Joed Polly, Jeff Mission, and Andrew Sewell founded the team, but over the years many talented and creative friends have joined to write, act, work behind the scenes, and collaborate. We completed our sixteenth movie, Fertility, in May 2019.

Team Obnots got together once again and stormed our brains hard until we came up our sixteenth movie, Fertility. We had to use either 'drama' or 'slapstick' as our genre, and to our surprise, we went with drama. We also had to use an egg as the prop, the line of dialogue "You don't have a clue, do you?", and the character 'George or Georgette Diffely, Artist'. Fertility tells the story of a struggling couple willing to try whatever it takes to get pregnant, and... well... you'll just have to wait and see... This is version 2, with a few minor fixes here and there. Fertility won the Audience Award for its screening group and went on to the Boston 48HFP Best Of screening.
