Download Official Team Leaders Packet
You have 48-hours to make an 8-minute short film. Yup, keep that coffee coming because 48 hours is all you got!
Enter your team for $60 by June 19th ($80 after June 19th), and you could win $700, $200 or $100!
This year we have category based cash-prizes! That’s right, top 3 films won’t be the only winners this year. Similar to the Academy Awards, there are no restrictions to how many awards a film may receive:
– Overall Film
– Audio Design
– Special Effects/Set Design/Graphics
– Costume Design
– *Movie Poster*
Friday, June 26th, at 6:00 pm all teams meet at Creative Kids. Your team randomly draws a genre, and we assign a line of dialogue that must be in your film. We explain the rules in detail (you get an official packet), and off you go into a whirlwind of rush, creativity and insomnia.
Send us a link to download your web-ready video by Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 pm. Judges from the industry will use your link to review and score your film.
You will also submit a high-quality hard copy of your film by Monday, June 29th, 5:00 p.m. for the Screening. Both files are needed to fulfill submission requirements.
We are asking designers to partner with a team of filmmakers to create the movie poster. Even if you don’t know anyone, come on June 26th at 6pm and we’ll partner you with a team.
The finished poster will be submitted:
– By email on Sunday, June 28 at 9pm. JPG format, 11×17
– Printed poster due on Monday by June 29th at 5pm. 11×17, one-sided mounted onto black foam core board.
1. Mandatories on the poster: Ghostlight 48-Hour Film Slam logo, Movie Title, Team Name
