Ever heard of Film Racing?
It is a group that goes around the country and gathers small teams of filming wannabes for contests.
They set several rules and the teams have 24 hours to produce a 4-minute movie that meets the rules.
Not just video, but a plot, a title, a soundtrack, special effects, dialogue, quality acting and film editing. That makes for a very fast 24 hours.
We attended their event in Hollywood CA back in 2007. Of course the talent in that zip code is already off the charts. It was as entertaining as it was intimidating.
Film Racing has just posted some of their latest videos, and we're posting some of our favorites here. Be sure to click over to their website, and their YouTube channel to see more!
We recommend clicking the full screen for these.
The rules for this contest, which they were given at the beginning of the 24-hour period:
1) A Prop: Include an egg,
2) An Action: Crumple paper, and
3) A Theme: Time Travel.
