48-Hour Film Challenge
On Tuesday, October 9 over 400 students and 30 staff and faculty from the School of Media, Art & Design’s (MAD) Advanced Filmmaking, Broadcasting for Radio & Contemporary Media, Media Fundamentals, Photography and Video Production programs will participate in the third annual MAD 48–hour Film Challenge.
The competition will begin at 10 a.m. in Gym 3 with a technical and project expectation briefing. Groups of students will then be matched with faculty and staff from MAD, who will provide mentorship throughout the process. Each group will also be given a line of dialogue, a prop and a character type that must appear in the short film.
Films will be screened on Friday October 12 at 8:45 a.m. at the Oshawa Cineplex Odeon. A jury of industry professionals will be in attendance to judge and select the top films and best overall film, and an awards presentation will follow immediately after the screening.
For any questions or assistance during the MAD 48–hour Film Challenge, technical staff and faculty will be available during regular school hours in rooms B105A, L109 and L121 in the Gordon Willey Building.
Please note: all religious observations will be accommodated during the challenge. However, participants are expected to be available outside of religious time restrictions or commitments.
