The School of Media Arts & Studies is pleased to announce that the 12th annual 48 Hour Shootout competition is slated for February 21-23rd.
Teams of two or more from within the Media School will be given a genre, a prop and a line of dialogue, all of which must figure prominently in their 3-5 minute movie.
All work, with the exception of organizing cast and crew and securing equipment and locations, must be done within the 48 hour time period.
“Shootout has become the Media School’s major unifying event,” says Professor Frederick Lewis, founding faculty advisor. “Students learn a lot about themselves and about each other when they work under these stressful conditions, often forging friendships and working relationships that will last well beyond their time at the Media School.”
Students can compete in the open division or in the Freshman/Sophomore category. Applications are now available on the Media School website. Completed applications are due in the Media School office by Monday, February 17th before 5 pm.
The event, which attracts 25-30 teams and about 300 participants from the Media School, culminates with the screening and judging of the finished movies on February 23rd, at 6:30 pm in Memorial Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
