Clearly one of the organization’s most popular film contests, the One Night Stand issues the challenge, to write, shoot, and edit a short film in 10 hours. Teams will meet in the morning, and three items are drawn: a theme, an object, and a line of dialogue. All three elements must be used in the project. ONS usually draws the biggest crowd of the year, last year we had over 30 teams, and it’s the most fun when filmmakers get to “swap horror stories” at the end of the long day.
Start putting your teams together now. Tips: Shooters and editors are gold; find ‘em. It’s ok to get some locations in your back pocket ahead of time. All members of your team don’t need to be present at the morning drawing. If possible, edit as you shoot and leave plenty of time for rendering.
