FILMMAKERS: 50 Hour Slam kickoff approaches

Posted By on Fri, Mar 25, 2011 at 12:41 PM

We are now less than a week away from the 50 Hour Slam, an open film fest where competitors have two days and two hours to write, film, edit and score a short film that adheres to certain rules.

A major difference between this event and the 48-Hour Film Fests of yore — besides the extra two hours of work-time — is that the 50 Hour Slam team has assembled a lot of nice resources — including a talent pool from local agencies — if you want to go the trained-actor route. Check out the resource page.

The Inlander did one of these once, under the auspices of NxNW. The film sucked (I blame Michael Bowen), but it was a lot of fun. You guys should totally try it.
