I received an interesting email from my aunt in Boulder about THE SHOOT OUT 24 HOUR FILMMAKING FESTIVAL. From October 20-22, teams of filmmakers, students, etc., are challenged to produce a short film (and they mean short – see below) in – of all things – a single day.
Taken from the SHOOT OUT FESTIVAL website
“You have 24 hours to make a short filmvideo happen, not 48 or 72 but a fast and furious 24 hours. We leveled the playing field with NO editing allowed. Just pick up a camera and shoot!
Proven and organized process that guarantees you will have fun!
“Please note: Film must run 7 minutes or LESS, including titles and credits. Editing must be done in camera. You must use 5 of the 11 possible mandatory locations or props. One of the items must be in the first 30 seconds. You must supply final dub on serial numbered MiniDV tape supplied.”
Wow! They practically make the movie for you!
