2016 Tour Get Started

This Is Our Signature Event

Are you up for the 48 challenge? Can you and your team:

  • Come up with a great plot on the fly?
  • Work quickly & manage the clock?
  • Make the best out of resources at hand?
  • Display your creativity?

The Challenge?

To form a team and create a film from scratch in only 48 hours.

The Payoff?

At the end of the weekend, you have a brand new film. Plus we'll screen it at a local theater.

Quick Overview

Your team will be assigned a genre and a set of elements - a character, prop and line of dialogue – to incorporate in the film. All creative work - writing, shooting and editing - must occur within the official 48 hour competition time frame.
