Warning: this is not a story about a colorfully themed 5K. Honestly, the 24-Hour Video Race is probably considerably more strenuous. Presented by The Video Association of Dallas, the 12th annual 24-Hour Video Race, will commence and the Angelika Film Center at 11: 59 p.m. on Friday, May 10 and will end exactly 24 hours later at the same location on Saturday, May 11. Teams are given 4 elements (A prop, a theme, a line of dialog, and a location that will be revealed at the start of the race) and 24 hours to complete their film.
Dallas filmmakers of all levels and experience are invited to participate (past teams have included elementary school students to professional filmmakers), but teams must make it to the finish line by midnight to be eligible for judging. Student teams compete against other student teams and adult teams are categorized by team size rather than skill level.
Race teams are divided into 5 categories:
Pixelvision K-12 Teams
Futurevision Current College/University students and recent graduates
Auteur Professional or amateur teams of a single member
Guerilla Professional or Amateur teams of 2 to 5 members
Hollywood Professional or Amateur teams of 6 or more members
Teams can STILL register online at http://www.24hourvideorace.com/ until 5 p.m. Friday, May 10!
