Seven days, one theme, one prop, one line of dialogue, creative people. Results - a three minute film and the warmth and encouragement of your community. The PRIDE VIDEO SHOOT OUT, sponsored by the Bloomington, IN PRIDE Film Festival is an opportunity for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered, queer people and their allies to make short videos for presentation at the annual PRIDE Film Festival, Jan 27-29, 2011. All budding filmmakers, goofy hams who like to be in from of a camera, serious investigators of social issues, and groups of friends or families are invited to participate in a short-term, good-natured competition of creative endeavor.
"Last year's initial Shoot Out was so well received," says Danielle McClelland, Executive Director of the BCT Management, Inc., the private non-profit that leads a volunteer Steering Committee in planning the Festival each year. "The audience loved the short films that were created, and the experience brought people together in a new way to think and create. We're really hoping to expand the number of films this year."
The PRIDE VIDEO SHOOT OUT correlates with the overall theme of the 2011 PRIDE Film Festival, "Family: It's All Relative". Filmmakers are encouraged to begin developing ideas around the theme now, but actual filming should not start until the competition commences at the Wed, Jan 19th registration deadline and kick-off event. At the kick-off event, filmmakers will also be given a line of dialogue and a prop that must be included in every film. Completed films will be submitted to the Festival no later than 5pm on Jan 26, and will be shown at the Opening Night Screening of the PRIDE Film Festival at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on Thursday, Jan 27, 2011. The audience will vote on their favorite film, and the winning film will be announced and shown again on Saturday. Registration for the competition is $10 per team.
