48-Hour Film Challenge
This fall you (and all of the students in your program) will participate in the second annual MAD 48–hour Film Challenge beginning on Tuesday October 10th, 2017! Over 500 students will participate in this year’s Challenge, under guidance from 38 staff and faculty.
Here’s how it works: We’ll mix you and your colleagues all into small interdisciplinary groups with other participating MAD programs, so you’ll have the opportunity to meet students from a variety of disciplines across the School. A line of dialogue, a genre, a prop and a character type will be assigned to each group and must appear in your short film.
Expectations and technical details will be discussed at a meeting in C113 on Tuesday, October 10th. The time of your specific meeting will be announced in class and posted on DC Connect (our online learning management system).
on Friday morning, October 13th at the Oshawa Cineplex Odeon, located at 1351 Grandview Street North. You can get there (using your student transit pass) on Durham Transit. Don’t miss this fun event!
A jury of industry professionals will attend the screening and select the top films for each genre and the best overall film. There will be an awards presentation immediately following the screening.
If you have any questions or need assistance during the MAD 48–hour Film Challenge, technical staff and faculty will be available during regular school hours in rooms B105 and L223.
*Please note that any religious observations will be accommodated. We hope (and expect) that you will participate and attend at times that are not affected by religious restrictions or commitments.
