Who? Exeter Phoenix is hosting a 48-hour film-making challenge for film enthusiasts or amateurs who want to try their hand at – wait for it – film-making.
What? The 48-hour Film Challenge is what it is: you are given 48 hours to create, shoot and edit a short film that lasts no longer than 5 minutes. Interesting, no? You can enter individually or with others (for free) from Friday 12 October. Then, on Friday 9 November, entrants will be given a briefing that includes a theme, a prop and a sentence to explore through the medium of film. The finished product is then submitted on Sunday 11 November: entries will be judged and whittled down to the best few, then screened for the world to see at the special Two Short Nights Film Festival on 29-30 November. The audience pick the winner.
When? 9-11 November 2012.
You can register to take part between 12 October and 7 November.
The screening will be 29-30November.
