  • Only works that meet the deadline will be officially part of the competition. All films fully and successfully transferred and received on Sunday, November 16, 2014 (on-time and late) will be screened.

B. 在正式赛程的48小时内,可以包括以下创作环节,但是对一切创作活动没有限制,可以不局限于此:

  • 写剧本
  • 排练
  • 服装和布景的设计
  • 拍摄

  • 调试设备
  • 确定场地/选景
(同样见规则D规则I.)

D. All footage must be machinima footage created during the 48 hour time period of the project. "Machinima footage" is defined as footage made with a real-time computer graphics engine within the 48 hour time period of the project. Examples of acceptable packages are Open Sim, Second Life, iClone, World of Warcraft, Moviestorm, and Muvizu. Animation applications such as Maya, Lightwave, or Blender may not be used to create machinima footage.

  • Animation and special effects are permitted, but must be created during the 48 hour time period, and placed under or over machinima footage. (Note: Stock footage as part of a special effect in a third party special effects program is permissible. Stock footage is permissible as part of a post-production effect or on a background monitor, i.e., a television, as long as the team has rights to the stock footage and the stock footage is placed over or under machinima footage that is shot within the Official 48 Hour Time Period. Allowable stock footage includes bullets, fires, explosions, chromakeyed backgrounds, etc., but stock footage of avatars, characters or other performers is not allowed.)
  • 在获准的情况下照片可以被使用,照片的拍摄时间没有规定,可以使用比赛之前拍好的照片。但不得用于制作虚假动态画面中。

E. Each participating group must have a representative present at the official Kickoff Event of the Machinima 48 Hour Film Project.

  • 在启动仪式上每个团队必须声明并签署一份队长协议,协议由各队队长签署。未签署协议的报名团队不能参加"48小时电影项目"。
  • Each group will be randomly assigned a required genre of its film.
  • Teams will be given the option of relinquishing the genre selected in the drawing for a Wild Card genre. If opting for the Wild Card, teams must successfully communicate this to the city prodSucer by 14:10 US Eastern Standard Time and may not go back to their original genre.

F. 每个团队会被分派到一个必须出现在参赛电影中的创作元素,参赛团队会指定所拍短片的电影类型、一个特定的角色,一件道具或一些台词。

  • 被分派到的制定人物和台词必须在影片中有明确体现。
  • 被分配到的台词必须被严格逐字引用。可以是念白、旁白,也可以被唱出来或者写出来。可以使用任何语言,但是在引用不明确时,该台词要有清晰的翻译。
  • 在48小时内创作完成同时涵盖所有指定元素的电影,才有资格成为"正式48小时电影"。

G. 所有演职人员都必须志愿参加。

H. There is no limit to the number of cameras.

I. 注意:如果影片中使用翻唱歌曲或者重新谱曲的桥段,参赛团队也需要获得该首歌曲的使用权。本条规则不针对在国际上具有"开放使用"的歌曲条目。

希望参赛团队与本地作曲家及音乐人合作编写、录制影片原声。参赛团队预先完成音乐创作是被允许的;在电影中使用的所有的音乐片段必须取得所有引用乐曲的使用权限。同时在获得使用权限后,短片中也可以使用团队在参加48小时电影项目以外制作完成的音乐。

J. 成片的片长为4到7分钟。片尾不算在内。见规则K

The finished film must be a minimum of 3 minutes in duration, and a maximum of 5 minutes in duration—not including end credits. In other words, the official running time begins after the required 48HFP slates and ends prior to the end credits. The required slates and the end credits do not count towards the minimum time of 3 minutes. The film story may not be longer than 5 minutes.

K. Credits

  1. 正片开始前应该包含如下内容:

    • 5秒钟的黑屏
    • 一个标题卡注明:团队名称、片名、类型、城市和日期
    • 这部分动画
          - OR -
      A title card with: 或者 标题卡也可以录入如下内容:
    • 2秒钟的黑屏

    Your film follows this.

  2. OPENING CREDITS: After the 2 seconds of black, some films start with opening credits. These are not encouraged, but if you use them, opening credits are considered to be part of the film, and therefore count against the five minute maximum. Additionally, if your film has opening credits other than simply the film's title (for example, the names of directors, actors, etc.), you must include one of the following:

    • 文本内容"(你们组的名字)presents"后面必须立刻加上"a 48 Hour Film Project"字样

    • 在电影名字后面立刻加上"a 48 Hour Film Project"字样 "a 48 Hour Film Project"

      这条文本内容不要加引号,但是可以全部为小写(如"a 48 hour film project")。

  3. END CREDITS: Credits at the end of each film are limited to a maximum of 60 seconds. The 60 seconds is considered additional to the length of the film, as stated in 规则J. (That is, a film may be 5 minutes long, with an additional 60 seconds of credits, for a total running time of 6 minutes.)

    在片尾必须包含以下字样:"This film was made for the 48 Hour Film Project. www.48hourfilm.com"

  4. SLATES AND CREDITS AFTER 48HFP: After the competition, films screening online should retain the pre-film title card that says: "This film was made for the 48 Hour Film Project 2014. www.48hourfilm.com”. Information on where you can post and screen your film after the official screenings can be found here: What should I do with my film?

This file must match a final full resolution version that must be uploaded and fully and successfully received by 23:00 US Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, November 16th, 2014.

M. 关于作品提交事宜的提示

  • We recommend that you use a audio levelization program, such as AVS Audio Editor, to make sound levels relatively even throughout your film. (If your film has uneven sound or sound that peaks, it may be modified to protect the playback equipment.)
  • 在符合规则Q的前提下,所有在截至日期之前收到的影片(包括48小时之内完成的作品和违反规则延时完成的作品)都可以展映。

N. 所有参赛队应该在确保人员、引用音乐权限和场地使用权限的基础上最大限度发挥您们的才能,这也是项目组织者才能的体现,在成片/视频的片尾,以上内容需要标注清楚。
