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 fifteenth movie, Code of the Road, in May 2018.

Against several odds, Team Obnots' made their *fifteenth* 48 Hour Film Project movie! We got 'road movie' as our genre, and had to use a flower as the prop, the line of dialogue "Let me think", and the character 'Thud or Thelma Taylor, person of action'. Follow the reluctant meanders of a vandweller who is forced to hit the road and navigate the somewhat arbitrary 'Code of the Road' that inexplicably comes with owning her green VW bus. This is version 1.5, with various editing fixes, some deleted scene chunks and voice overs added back in, and other adjustments. At some point in time, there will also be a bloopers and outtakes video for this movie.


Cast & Crew: Abigail Bower, Benjamin Garton, Clara LaFrance, Dan Strange, JM Moss, Irina Peligrad, Jeff Mission, Jen Buckingham, Jess Riggs Garton, Joed Polly, Future Losers, Nick ‘Fig’ Figueiredo, and Zeb Polly.
