[Work Day] 48 Hour filmSPARK Challenge

  • September 6, 2013 · 7:45 PM
  • Dean's House

WHAT: The 48 Hour filmSPARK Challenge is a race to complete a film from start to finish in exactly 48 hours!

WHEN: The 48 Hour filmSPARK Challenge begins September 6, 2013 and ends September 8, 2013 This is the “Official 48 Hour Time Period.”

WHERE: Filming is allowed anywhere you can travel to and return from in 48 hours.
• A team representative must pick up a packet at Mission Valley Cinema (2109 Avent Ferry Rd, Raleigh) on the start date, between 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Completed films will be turned in at the same location between 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm on the end date.


Let's Make a Movie RTP is registered and paid.



Basic Schedule Outline

Friday: Everyone shows up for a little bit of socialization and general brain storming.

After the writers get to know the actors, the writers stay around to finish the script.  Preferably done before midnight.

Check your email first thing in the morning.

Saturday: Everyone shows up at 8:00 am at the shooting location announced in the morning email.  Actors get the script to tweak with the writers.  Crew discusses shooting and setup.  Actors and crew need to be available until 10:00 pm (we will not shoot that long, but just in case).

Sunday: Editors and director/producer show up at editing location and create the film and submit it before the deadline.  If anyone wants to stand/sit and watch the process, they can also come.



Start Location on Friday is at my house.  I send out final directions the day before.  However, your best bet is to find the cross street listed above and then go from there.

After 9:30 pm it will be QUIET TIME.  Which means, don't talk to loud so you won't wake Dean 2.0.

    Great! Actually filmed in a place with barely any ambient noise. Woo hoo!! Didn't get to put in all the special effects we wanted, due to render time, but it is still good with out them.

    Getting a little worried about Mel's health. I might hit him over the head with his failing to render computer.
