Film competition weekend

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2008 at 3:32 PM

There's still time to enter either the Trip 7 film competition or the 24 Hour Film Festival, both kicking off this Saturday.

For Trip 7, filmmakers will have seven required elements, seven days to shoot and films must be seven minutes long. There's a $700 prize package to the winner. Contestants pick up packages with rules and required elements at 2 p.m. at Easy Street on May 3 and turn in their completed film on May 9. A public showing and judging will be held on May 10 at Easy Street. Early registration is encouraged. Call James Smith at 541-7326 or Michael Henderson at 372-3530 or 551-2478 for more info.Take 25. Before 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Here's the gist of the 24 Hour Film Festival, which is open to anyone in Arkansas:

On Saturday, May 3rd, at 10:00 am, we'll send an email to the registered teams with the super-secret condition(s). Teams then have 24 hours to write, cast, shoot, edit, and upload their film to the Art Amiss vimeo account. All submissions must be in by 10 am the following day. No exceptions. Get ready to pull an all-nighter. Drink some o' that suspiciously-pigmented energy fluid, greet the sun's early dawn, and beat the church crowd to the eatin' place for a well-deserved wrap party.

Sunday afternoon, all films will be viewable on the Art Amiss channel. The best 10 films out of the bunch, as decided by the always-discriminating board members of Art Amiss, will be screened at the Art Amiss VII event on May 8. The grand prize winner will be awarded a trophy, specially designed by a Fayetteville artist. After that, the winners get to give a blustery acceptance speech and say whatever the hell they want, because we don't have no damn orchestra.

All qualifying entries will be added to the Art Amiss VIII "24 Hour Film Festival" DVD. That shit will be floating around Arkansas for years. At the very least, it'll be doubling as a coaster or dangling from the rearview mirror in some quaint dude's Civic.
