O-36: Orlando's 36 Hour Video Race 2004
Take one prop, one line of dialogue, one genre-and only 36 hours to write, shoot, and edit an entire video that is no more than seven minutes long. Think you're up to the challenge? Find out by participating in O-36: Orlando's 36 Hour Video Race 2004, hosted by the Orlando Chapter of the Media Communications Association-International and co-hosted by the Orlando Chapter of Women In Film and Television.
Between 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 7 and 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 8, registered teams will use the City of Orlando as their backdrop as they race against the clock to produce an original Video Short using their own equipment and the talents of the various team members. The competition will begin and end at Gate Seven, 6001 Vineland Road, Suite 117, Orlando, Florida 32819. Each team will receive a kit at the beginning of the race which will include a prop, line of dialogue and genre to be used for the finished program.
Entry forms can be obtained from the MCA-I website at www.orlando.mca-i.org. Each team must complete and submit their application and entry fee no later than January 31. Entry fees are $45 for each professional team, and $20 for each student team. An additional fee of $10 for professional teams and $5 for student teams will apply to entry forms submitted after January 31. There is no limit to the number of teams or team members. The captain (executive producer) of each team must be at least 18 years old.
All O-36 participants are invited to a special screening and awards ceremony which will take place in March. Winners will be notified in advance of the awards ceremony.
"O-36 will enable local video professionals and students to demonstrate how creative they can be on a tight budget and an even tighter deadline," says Debey Von, chairperson of the O-36 committee. "We're looking forward to making this an annual event in Orlando."
