Boulder Community Media (BCM) and GoPro Cameras are presenting a 48-hour 3D filmmaking contest in conjunction with the Boulder International Film Festival Feb 16 – 19. Teams will be using the new 3D fixed-lens camera system and the Cinemark 3D editing software.
BCM seeks 10 teams who will be issued equipment and an editing software orientation prior to producing a 90-second movie. The best film will win a GoPro Hero camera and the top three will be looped on a 3D TV and viewable with RealD passive glasses at the Boulder Theater on Sunday February 19th.
If you’d like to participate, go to the BCM website and enter via:
Editing is allowed, but think about projects with no dialogue – unless it is voice over of recorded separately. The on board microphones are covered up in a plastic housing.
The projects will be shot entirely in Downtown Boulder and teams will be issued a list of elements that must be included in the movie.
The camera system is very user friendly and has a fixed focus fish eye lens so there are lots of possibilities for interesting story telling.
BCM and GoProeEmployees, contractors and volunteers are eligible to take part in the contest, but ineligible to win the prize.
Crews with members younger than 18-years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Teams must have a valid drivers license and credit card to check out the equipment, which must be returned when the movie is returned on the provided flash drive.
