ArtByChance is having a micro-film contest in which participants are required to create a 30-second film on a particular theme. This year’s theme is “change.”
I have a RED ONE camera. I have a steadicam. I have a jib arm, and a kessler crane. I have dolly tracks, light kits, microphones, boom poles, actors, and crew.
What I do not have is a compelling, visually dynamic 30-second story. This is where you guys come in.
If anybody has anything they’d be comfortable with me using for the video, I’d love to hear it. Alternately, I’d also love to see any other film makers here join the contest as my competition.
As a side question, has anybody else ever entered one of these typs of competitions? Any pitfalls or things I should be aware of about the micro-film category? All of my short films have been between 5 and 30 minutes long, so crafting a narrative in 30 seconds will be a fun challenge.
