A two-day filmmaking challenge is on deck for April
Participants in Allan Hancock College’s fifth annual filmmaking challenge will have two days to direct, produce, and finish a short film for the school’s film festival.
“Wired Weekend” will put five-member student-led teams to the test starting April 19 at 4 p.m., when each team receives a partial script. They’ll then have two days to finish writing the script, choose locations, collaborate with actors, and shoot and edit their films down to six minutes. The films are due for judgment on April 21.
The competition is open to all students and the general public in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. First prize is $500 and second is $200. All the films will be screened on May 11, in conjunction with the college’s film festival.
The entry fee is $60 per team. An entry form and competition rules are available from wiredweekend.com or the fine arts department in building F on Alan Hancock’s Santa Maria campus. For more information, contact Robin Smith at 922-6996, Ext. 3361, or email@example.com.
