Who is eligible?
Everyone is eligible - whether a 48 veteran or someone coming to the 48 for the first time. The most important consideration is that you and your team practice safe social distancing and that your participation does not jeopardize anyone's health.
How is it different?
COVID-19 has us stuck at home, right? Therefore, you'll need all your creativity and ingenuity to overcome these limitations:
Where may I film?
At home only.
All footage must be shot during the project weekend and in the home or on the home property of any member of your team.
Footage shot in public space or common space is not permitted.
How does it work?
The challenge will be short and allow for maximum creativity. It will be announced online on Friday at 7:00 pm local time. You will have 48 hours to write, shoot and edit a short video. Your entry must be uploaded by Sunday evening.
How do we collaborate?
It's a challenge that will test your creativity. Of course, you can simply collaborate with the people in your home - in the spirit of the Stuck at Home 48HFP. Or you can collaborate remotely. Your script can be written by someone halfway around the world, or co-written by you and a teammate connected online. Scenes can be shot in different homes and files shared electronically. And remote musical collaboration is a staple of the regular 48.
When is the competition?
There will be multiple filmmaking weekends - participate in any one you want... or do them all! There will be a different secret challenge each weekend.
How do I register?
There is no fee to participate. By registering, you will automatically receive the official filmmaking challenge by email each challenge Friday.
Stay connected to your filmmaking community virtually in the time of COVID-19.
