After You – 48 hour film project
After You is a short-film conceptualised as part of the 48 Hour Film Project in Nairobi, 2014. It features a young man struggling to find a meaning in his life after the death of his wife. However, the pain of loss weighs him down to the point of suicide.
The Making of After You
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and your team have a blast making a movie. All writing, shooting, editing and scoring must be completed in just 48 hours.
On Friday night, you are assigned a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, that must be included in your movie. 48 hours later, you must submit your film. Next? Your masterpiece will show on the big screen of a local theater!
In 2014 the 48HFP will visit more than 120 cities where more than 60,000 people will make short films. The Project has truly spread to the four corners of the globe as filmmakers from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas will compete to see who can make the best short film in a weekend.

After You was made by a team of creatives dubbed Department of World Domination aka Stacy’s Mum. This team was formed and finalised only a week before the 48HFP kick-off. Some members had never worked with each other, but were profecient in their various roles.
