5th Annual 72 Hour Film Shootout

June 19, 2008

You are so not ready for this! The title is pretty much self-explanatory. Hyphen is proudly sponsoring the 72 Hour Film Shootout, which means, yes, you have to shoot a film and edit it within 72 hours.

There's a lot of information. In fact, too much to be explained in a fun and exciting way here. So, go to their official website here and read more about official rules and join the community of sexy filmmakers. But go quick though, because it looks like their late registration ends TODAY!
Even if you're not into the whole filmmaking thing and just want to be a groupie (like me), go to their launch party on June 20 at the White Rabbit Lounge and scream like a little boy. The theme of the shootout will be announced at 8 pm.

Also, save the date for the Shootout Awards on July 13 at 12:30 pm at Asia Society (724 Park Avenue, New York), presented as part of the Asian American International Film Festival 2008.
And folks, this is just the beginning to a slew of fun and exciting things that will be happening in the Big Apple, film wise that is. I shall begin my adventures there starting on July 4. So, stay tuned.
