Forgot to post this one. We didn't compete in this year's 48 hour festival, and neither did Big Honkin', so it looks like we're safe for at least one more year at the top of the boards. Unknown Penguin and Mirandum are coming up fast behind us, though. And their wins at this years festival are a well deserved testament to the constant improvement we are all striving for as artists.

After adding up the scores and making 2 team score corrections, here is the updated DC 48 hours film project Legacy Rankings. Can’t wait to see who will add or join the rankings this year.
