48-Hour Video Race "Prop" Spring 2009

And the mystery prop is . . .

. . . actually a line from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The line is:

OR . . . you may represent the line through text that we see OR . . . have some one say the line in your film OR . . . the possibilities are endless - so long as the line appears or is heard or sung or whatever ~ somewhere ~ in your 1-minute film.

Don't feel obligated to reference the film, in any way beyond the quote, itself. Your interpretation of the line can take on a life of its own.

And Finally, don't forget to also incorporate a cheese sandwich somewhere in your film, as well - in the spirit of the Cheese Sandwich Film Festival.

Week 14, 15 and Beyond

This Spring, the mothership blog will be on hiatus (while the Silvas focus on their brand-spanking-new minature Silva) but there are a new crop of student links (to the right) setting off on the 6x1 journey. Above is a picture of last semester's year end blow-out screening/installation experiemental-stravaganzah at Jengo's playhouse. Everyone was very cold but had lots of fun - in part due to the really great final projects and in part due to the endless cans of free Rockstar Energy drink donated by Cucalorus. The event featured work from the 302 Experimental Film class, 6x1, 2D Animation and the 302 Documentary class.

6x1 offered a crop of 48-hour video race featuring as the mystery prop . . .

. . . a cookie cutter.
