Moviestorm to sponsor 48 Hour Film Project

Last week, we told you about the upcoming 48 Hour Film Project, which challenges film-makers to create a movie in just 48 hours. (Not to be confused with the 48-hour machinima contest being held by Fantastic Arcade, which we told you about earlier today and are also sponsoring!)  We love seeing how creative people respond to working under pressure and with extreme limitations, so we’ve decided to throw some Moviestorm goodies into the prize pool.

We’re offering a year’s sub to Moviestorm for every member of the winning team, plus licenses to all the Moviestorm pack other than the audio packs and After Dark.  We’re also throwing in a free month’s Moviestorm sub for everyone who enters.

We wish all participants the best of luck, whatever tools you’re using. This is a great test of film-making skills, and is as demanding for machinimators as it is for teams using conventional film techniques.

CALLING ALL Machinimatographers!
The 48 Hour Film Project, the oldest and biggest time filmmaking competition, is looking for machinima!  In a wild, sleepless weekend, you and a team will make a movie—— write, shoot, edit and score it.  From scratch.  In 48 hours.  On Friday, September 17, you’ll get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie.  By Sunday, September 19, the movie must be complete and uploaded to our server in California.

Each completed film is guaranteed a screening in Twinity, Inworldz and Second Life.

Winner ánd runner up will be screened at MachinimaExpo 2010.

Meet other machinimatographers, spend 48 hours in intense movie making, have your film screened in several virtual worlds, and compete to represent machinima against the other 90 48HFP cities!  Come on out and make a movie!

To be part of the 48HFP, register online at: Registration costs $48 per team. Space is limited, so register today!


The events in 2010 are held in Second Life, which is a free download at:

Teamleaders are expected to be present at kickoff and screening event, if you need any help at all in entering Second Life; please contact Chantal Harvey, and you will be coached step by step. It is also possible to come to the events in a ready made account. (talk about it being easy.)
