48 Go Green. Make a movie. Go to Hollywood!
48 Go Green gives you the possibility to experience a new kind of adventure. Artistic adrenaline will be running high. It's an incredible challenge to create a completed short film in just 48 hours, and there is an atmosphere of intense creativity for this competition. The bonus is that you will be doing your part to save the planet in the process!
The competition focuses on team work and a massive meeting of the minds of some of the most talented filmmakers the world over. All of the elements must come together to meet this deadline and get your story on screen. You'll have to be prepared and flexible, and bring with you all of your passion and creativity.
New for 2013: Anytime Participation
48 Go Green no longer requires teams to sign up to compete all on the same weekend. Whenever you are ready for your Official Project Time Period to begin, you may log in and start! No more rearranging your schedule to our time frame. You have the freedom to do this project exactly when it works for you. From now until November 15, we will be taking 2013’s entries. This innovation will bring more excitement and enjoyment for you!
How it works
Team Leaders will log in to their account on the date that they choose to begin their Official Project Time Period. At the time of entry, you will be prompted to agree to the terms and conditions, and to provide payment. After all of this has been successfully settled, each team will receive a randomly generated Eco Theme, as well as the required elements for the film.
THESE ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE ON YOUR ACCOUNT PAGE! Do not wait for an email. We no longer email assignments to participants!
From there on, your imagination is the limit! For the next 48 hours, your life will be all about movie-making!
The production/creation of the film includes the following:
- Script writing
- Costume design and creation
- Props and set design and building
- Sound recording
If that sounds like a whirlwind of activity, that's because it is! All shooting must be done your Official Project Time Period, beginning at the acceptance of terms and payment.
The only work that can begin before the official duration of your 48 Go Green Project is the pre-production phase:
- Organizing your team
- Casting your actors
- Procuring equipment
- Securing use of locations
To be certified as an official entry of the 48 Go Green Competition, each participating team must comply with all existing rules and regulations, found here. The organizers of the Festival maintain the right to exclusively screen certified 48 Go Green Festival official entries. All Official Entries of the 48 Go Green Festival 2013 can compete for the title of “GLOBAL BEST FILM OF 48 GO GREEN 2013.”
Anyone may participate in 48 Go Green, whether you are a professional or an amateur filmmaker. The only requirements are that you follow all rules, and complete and upload your film to the official website of the festival. Remember, complete means everything! Script, direction, editing, shooting, sound-recording, and any finishing touches we might have left out.
