Students, community members invited to enter 48-Hour Video Project

October 8, 2013

EAU CLAIRE—Students and community members are invited to share their knowledge, creativity, skills and love of filmmaking — on a very tight deadline — in the 48-HourVideo Project Oct. 18-20 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Participants will have 48 hours to write, record and edit a short film (not to exceed 10minutes) related to the project theme, "Monsters and Magic".

At 7 p.m. Oct. 18, participants will meet and register in the east lobby of Davies Center, near the Service Center. They will receive a line of dialogue, a prop and a character name to be included in the film. Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, participants will have 48 hours to create their film. Videos must be submitted no later than 9 p.m. Sunday.

Over the following week a panel of judges will deliberate and determine winners in 10 award categories.

On Oct. 30, all completed projects will be presented at the official screening, beginning at 6 p.m. in Woodland Theater of Davies Center. Admission is free and open to all. Project participants will be recognized for their efforts, and awards will be presented. Refreshments will be served at a reception in the theater lobby following the awards presentation.

The 48-Hour Video Project is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
