[Work Day] 48 Hour Guerilla Film Challenge - writing

  • May 18, 2012 · 7:00 PM

The 2012 Guerrilla Film Challenge

(http://www.48gfc.com)

The 48GFC is about fun, challenge, and just "making it work" - Filmmakers come together in teams and are assigned a random genre and line of dialogue. After that they are in a race against the clock to write, shoot and edit a short film. These films are uploaded through their accounts to our website.

  • On May 18th (anytime after 12:01 am EST) you will login to the website and you will be randomly assigned a genre and line of dialogue. (Genre blending is fine btw so if get "romantic comedy" and you want to make a "zombie romantic comedy" go for it.)

  • The time is based from the time YOU start. You have 48hrs from the time you hit the "start button". Only after you hit it do you get the above elements.

This is an on-line competition, so when we hit the "Start Button", that's when we start our contest. No need to drive anywhere to get the elements, we can all meet at a place and get started at that point.

Everyone who is going to be a part of this film, needs to be at this meeting.

We will figure out the basic out line and the writers will write the movie. Then everyone will meet back up the next morning for filming.

This is a no pay film. I guarantee no pay for doing work on this film. If the main prize is won, I will give some of the money to those who participate.

    Well, we didn't start until 8 pm, but we managed to get the script done by midnight. We had some funny moments when writing the script, hopefully everything comes together as expected. You get a little delirious when it gets that late and you have to think.

    Since this is being shot guerrilla-style, permits aren't something we need to concern ourselves with. But we do need to think about limiting locations and setups, so as to get the max amount of footage in our limited amount of time.

    But we would need permits for anything we put on camera right? Kinda hard to do at this point. Just thinking about an article I read yesterday about Moore Square and how far back in history it goes.

    BONUS POINT OPPORTUNITY: We want to see where you are in the world, so in your film show us a 3-5 second, beauty shot of the coolest location you can find where you live. This should be the location you want the rest of the world to see, one that really shows off your home town. ---- something to keep in mind

    Please come fed. If you are going to hang around for the writing, you might want to bring your favorite energy drink..... and you'll probably need more of that in the morning.

    I canceled the pre-meeting for Thursday. If anyone wants to arrive at 6:30 to chat before we get started, that will be fine.
