Never fun, always required!

There's no way around it, if you're a filmmaker, you've got to have the paperwork. All the documents you need to have a successful filmmaking weekend are right here.

Step 1: Understand How It Works

First, review the Filmmaking Rules.

The rules are straightforward, but inevitably people have questions. If you have a question you can't find in the rules, send us an email.

Step 2: Kickoff Documents

Second, download the following document. It must be signed by the film team/band leader and submitted at the Kickoff event.

  • Filmmaking Team/Band Leader's Agreement: The leader of each filmmaking team and band must sign this form to indicate agreement to the 48HFP's rules and requirements. You must bring the signed agreement to the Kickoff event on Friday night.

Step 3: Dropoff Documents

  • Wrap Up Form: We want to know the details—what happened during your wild weekend of moviemaking?
    - This form should be filled out by both the film team and the band (or solo musician).
  • Team Roster: Tells us who is on your team, their job, and their e-mail address.
  • Certification Statement: The Team Leader must sign this form to certify that all creative work took place during the Official Competition Period.
  • Waiver and Release Form
    - This is a combined Talent Release and Liability Waiver Form, meaning there's one less form you have to keep track of.
    - All cast and crew must sign.
    - Each team member must sign a separate form.
    - Remember, this form helps protect you, the team leader, as well as the Project.
  • Music Release Form: This form is used for music.
