LIF 24 hour video project starts Saturday
The 24 Hour Video Project Part Two, presented by Local Independent Filmmakers (LIF) will start Saturday at noon in the lobby of Community Television, 800 Wisconsin St.
Teams will compete to make films between two and 10 minutes in length. The theme of the movie must be aliens invading the Earth.
At 11:45 a.m. Saturday each team will get a character name, a line of dialogue and a prop, which all must appear in the film. Filming cannot begin before noon and must stop at noon on Sunday.
Some elements may be done ahead of time such as writing the script, storyboarding, creating props, costumes, makeup, prosthetics or any other raw special visual or digital effect element.
Teams must obtain permission to use music in which someone else owns the rights. However, Community Television has a library of music that can be used without any legal constraint. The Internet also has midi files of classical, ragtime and other older music that is no longer under copyright protection.
The cost is $5 per team.For more information, including registrations and any questions, contact Bill Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (715) 839-5067. Interested participants can also visit the 24 hour video project link at www.cvctv.org for information, updates and rules.
