Minute Movie :: DROP
Theme of the Month: DROP Every month we're going to each make a minute movie on a theme. This month it's DROP. Your interpretation can be as literal or as figurative as you want. Let your imagination take over! All minute movies will be screened the third Sunday of the month. So come see your movie on the big screen, talk about it, get feedback from your peers, learn new techniques and meet awesome people! We'll meet at 6:30 in the lobby for some socializing time (bring a contribution of some kind) and then at 7 we'll move upstairs for the screening. See you there! Suggested $5 donation The movies will be available on the facebook page, twitter and on the blog so be sure to like and follow: Use #minutemovies on your posts!

This is a family friendly group! -Upload your video to YouTube and send me an email at [masked] with the link and I'll post a list of all the videos after they've been screened. -Deadline is the Saturday before the screening -Movies will be screened on a first-come, first-serve basis. So send me the link as soon as you're done! -Priority will be given to those who are present at the meeting, but if you finish a movie and can't make it, send me the link and I'll still screen it! -In the interests of keeping the screening from going more than 2 hours, movies that follow all the guidelines have priority (on time and within the length limit). You are welcome to submit multiple films, but I might ask you to pick which one will be shown if there are a lot of submissions for the month. -By submitting you're giving Minute Movies permission to use clips and images from your video for promotional purposes. *A few sites for royalty free music: Incompetech - http://incompetech.com/music/royalty -...

What we're about

We like to make movies. Whether professionally or just for fun, this group is for people who want to flex their creative muscles. We welcome everyone no matter which genre you're into. Each month we will all create a short film "minute movie" for a specific theme. Interpretation of the theme and execution of the film is completely up to you. One a month we will meet for a screening of all the submissions and for a discussion.

The movies will be available on the facebook page, twitter and on the blog so be sure to like and follow:
