60 Second Film Contest

Hey everybody! The Film LLC recently had a 60 Second Film Contest. Here were the rules:
You have to break off into teams of no more than 4 people.
Each team was then given this quote:

"I was looking for that shop
where the shopkeeper would say,'There is nothing of value in here.'
I found it and did not leave.
The richness of not wantingwrote these

Each team had four hours to create a video 60 seconds in length. No more. No less.

Each team was given an obstruction to follow: for example, one team was not allowed to shoot on campus, another was not allowed to have any shots of more than 6 seconds in length, etc.

Immediately after the video was completed, the videos were screened in front of an audience and panel of judges. Everyone was allowed to vote for the audience favorite...except filmmakers were not allowed to vote for their own, of course. The votes were tallied, and an Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize winners were given trophies.

It was a lot of fun. We had lots of residents (even from other floors) come to watch the four films that were produced. All in all, it was a great event. Everyone is looking forward to the 12 hour film contest coming up in the spring!
I have placed a link to the Film LLC's facebook page so you can watch the videos that were made. There are more pictures up there as well.
