What Can You Do In A Day?

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!

  1. I’ve always wanted to do this but never had time. I’ve done similar things in the past and I can say from experience that there’s nothing quite so challenging and exciting. I urge anyone who is interested to sign up and try to do this.

  2. That sounds fantastic! I bet lots of cool things come out of that.
    On a side note, I think it’s funny that there are so few posts now that a login is required. I like the feature, but it’s still funny.

  3. Dear Andrew,

    This is not really a comment. But I am lazy, so fuck you.

    Do you know how much I love and miss you?

    A lot. Come back soon, else I die.

    Love,
    Ethan.

  4. Dear Ethan,

    I hope this letter (or combination of letters) finds you well. I yearn for you desperately. I’ll be coming back for a week over Thanksgiving, and I know that seems ever so far away, but remain strong, Pumpkin, and await the day I shall return and sweep you off your feet and into the dustpan.

    Sincerely,
    Andrew.

  5. By the way, this shoot-out deal sounds really awesome.
    So far, me and parker and vinny are on board for doing that for sure. We’re in the process of constructing a script (or at least an outline of one) that would be easy to film with those restrictions, and then we’ll probably try to recruit more acting-type peoples.
    I don’t know why I just shared, but I did.

    I love you all, especially you, Andrew.

    Except for Mikhail. I hate that guy.

  6. Good show, all of you who have decided you want to do this!

    On an administrative note, I have re-enabled public commenting. It looks to me like you’ll all be able to play fair again, and I really hate web sites that make you register to participate. If you have an account, I encourage you to use it when commenting because you will then be able to edit your own comments later.

    I can assure you for a fact that there will be no more editing of other people’s comments, and I will here warn that I will not hesitate to blacklist the IPs of spoofers. No spoofing is allowed. Got it?

  7. If I must, I could be ‘in’ for the 20th gig in Boulder.

    I may, however, be busy doing something along the lines of sound for a dance recital that Ms. Powell asked me to do sometime last month. I do not, however, actually have any idea what is going on, so I may or may not be out. Or possibly not.

    As for Andrew, nobody’s listening. I kid, I kid. I’m not listening.

    As for Mikhail, I love that guy. He got spooky green hair.

  8. It is very temporary, I think. It was for the anime convention over the past weekend. I had silver, though it sucked and fell off throughout the convention. At least I can find comfort that little parts of my sparkly soul are now in a vacuum somewhere in the building.
