Producers Challenges-

This challenge is taken on your own time within the given 3 month period. Once registered, you receive a packet of information and releases. It will include 4 different things to include in your film. This can range from colors to themes to locations to characters and so on. All films are due by the deadline and will be screened and voted on the same month for awards. All Films made get IMDB Credits. Winning Films Move On to Annual Awards and Possible DVD Distribution. 

Writers Challenges- 

Writing Challenges vary from fast paced short film races to complete directors/producers vision competitions, where the writers are given a certain amount of time in one room with various directors from various genres to create a story based on certain locations, props, or characters the director/producer wants to see. Then each director/producer will select a winner from each genre and make their film come to life. These films will then compete against each other during an MMTB film festival. Many other writers challenges are coming soon.
