Calling all filmmakers!
The East Bay Express' 4th annual Earth Day challenge is much more than just a digital film festival. You, the filmmakers, put the "festive" in festival as you race against the clock in a test of your endurance, creativity, and skills. Are you up to this challenge?
The 24-Hour Digital Film Festival means upon arrival to the "base camp" at Actual Cafe on April 21 , you pick up your top secret packet with the assigned scenario (hint: something "green" themed), plus other added challenges to make your filming day even more wicked fun. Then you have 24 hours to shoot, edit, and return to the base camp on the morning of April 22 (Earth Day) with your finished DVD to the East Bay Express Film Festival staff.
This challenge is especially fun for teams, so enlist your pals, family, or geeky filmmaking friends to join you. We want you to be creative, entertaining, bold, and serious about making a quality film. Most importantly though, we want you to have fun!
PRIZES: $500 for the first place team, $250 in gift certificates to the second and third place teams.
This year the Challenge is sponsored by Actual Café, Oakland Underground Film Festival and Trumer Pils.
