Black Rock City 48 Hour Film Project

Post by benguaraldi » Fri Jul 28, 2006 8:33 am


Don't spectate with that videocamera! Participate in the 48 Hour Film Project! Here's the deal: You and a team make a fiction short--write, shoot, edit, and score it--all while on the playa. Then we premiere it on the big screen at Videogasm (Esplanade & 9:30) on Thursday, August 31st, at 9pm, with a crowd of enthusiastic burners in attendance.

Wanna make a movie? Great! Here's how to do it.

1. FORM A TEAM. Register online at (If you don't have enough folks or equipment, send an email to after you register.)

2. GET THE ELEMENTS. You must include our character, prop, line of dialogue, and genre in your film. You can find these on posters at Videogasm, Playa Info, and Media Mecca or on the web at:

3. MAKE YOUR MOVIE. Make a fiction film that is less than eight minutes long. The most important step!

4. PREMIERE YOUR FILM. We'll be showing all of the films at Videogasm on Thursday at 9pm. Esplanade & 9:30. Don't be late!

Wanna help out? Here's some things we need.

1. CAMERAS. Have a video camera you're willing to loan? Email

2. COMPUTERS. Have a computer with editing software that you're willing to loan? Email

3. THEME CAMP AWARDS. Have a theme camp that wants to award a prize? Email

4. YOU. Join a team! Post an ad at , or come to the Kickoff on Tuesday, August 29th, at 3pm at Videogasm. Esplanade & 9:30.

5. AGAIN, YOU. Watch the movies! Showing on Thursday, August 31st, at 9pm at Videogasm. Esplanade & 9:30.

Meet other Burning Man filmmakers, indulge your creative side, and have your film screened on the playa! Come on now, make a movie!

That looks really cool - they do something similar in LA (called Instant Films), it's a blast!
