Posted by    |    May 5th, 2012 at 9:50 am

The 2012 24-Hour Video Race began at the Dallas Angelika Film Center (Mockingbird Station) Friday, May 4th 2012 at 11:59pm with a theme, prop, location and line of dialogue assignment for the film. The race concludes 24 hours later with a sprint to the finish line back at the Angelika. All of the films that make it by the midnight deadline will be screened and compete for awards & bragging rights. The winning videos will later be screened at the 25th VideoFest in September at the Dallas Museum of Art, and also on Frame of Mind, a KERA television program.

This year, the demented minds that run the race (yes Bart, I am talking about you), came up with the following elements:

Theme: Going Green

Location:  A Closet

Prop:  Fortune Cookie

A line a dialog is:  I don’t know, what do you think?
