Canadore champions filmmakersThursday, December 12, 2013 by: Steve Hardy
Film teams from Canadore’s Digital Cinematography Program are gearing up for an end-of-the-year filmmaking competition: the 24-HOUR CANADORE FILM CHALLENGE!
Students will be issued a specific prop, character and theme and given twenty hours to write, shoot, edit and deliver a short 3-minute film. The winner receives the coveted North Bay Crazed-Filmmaker Award.
The Film Challenge begins at the College Drive Campus on Tuesday, December 10 at 9 a.m. sharp. Completed films must be delivered to Professor Richard Story the following day by 9a.m. Productions will be judged by faculty members on originality and production value.
"This kind of filmmaking competition really galvanizes the students' energy and talents,” said Story. “It gives the students an opportunity to focus all of their filmmaking skills and teamwork experience into a single, condensed process of film creativity."
The end of the semester 24-Hour Film Challenge is a pilot project. The Digital Cinematography program plans to open the challenge up to filmmakers of all ages and abilities in the Spring 2014 semester.
