CREATE is back with the third edition of its 48-Hour Film Challenge!! We are keeping this year's competition online. Participate remotely as we challenge filmmakers from around the world to put their skills to work for a chance to win cash money!
Over the course of just one weekend, teams will concoct and produce a short film that is then screened for a global audience via CREATE Portage County's YouTube Channel at starting at 7:00 PM the night of the close of competition.
To add to the fun, we will draw details -- the genre, a line of dialogue, some stock footage, maybe a prop or character -- that your team will receive in an email right as the timer starts!
We are also keeping our "Bonus Points" partnership with the Point Brewery. Teams that integrate artful product placements of Stevens Point Brewery products and apparel will receive bonus points for their efforts.This includes any of their product lines from Whole Hog to Tea Runner to Cider Boys.
Registration is $50 per team. Week-of registration costs $75. Teams can be of any size but we still strongly encourage compliance with social distancing recommendations for your community. Collaboration and team bonding is part of the fun but we are emphasizing public health and safety first and foremost. Team captains will receive further details on the event when you register.
Any donations made in connection with this event will support the purchase of video production equipment available to the community for use at the IDEA Center.
