(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.)

注意:如果影片中使用翻唱歌曲或者重新譜曲的橋段,參賽團隊也需要獲得該首歌曲的使用權。本條規則不針對在國際上具有"開放使用"的歌曲條目。

J. 總時間

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. 正片開始前應該包含如下內容:

    • 5秒鐘的黑屏
    • 一個標題卡註明:團隊名稱、片名、類型、城市和日期

    • 5秒鐘的黑屏

    您的影片需跟著如下

  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:

    • 文本內容"(你們組的名字)presents"後面必須立刻加上"a 48 Hour Film Project"字樣

    • 在電影名字後面立刻加上"a 48 Hour Film Project"字樣"a 48 Hour Film Project"

      這條文本內容不要加引號,但是可以全部為小寫(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 Rule 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.)

    在片尾必須包含以下字樣:"This film was made for the 48 Hour Film Project. www.48hourfilm.com"

M. 關於作品提交事宜的提示
