Local filmmakers will have the chance to create their own masterpiece as the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival hosts their Spring Sidewalk Scramble April 13-15, 2012. The premise of the competition is simple. From concept to completion, the short films must be completely written, rehearsed, shot and edited in only one weekend. Filmmaking teams meet at the Kick-Off Event Friday, April 13th and find out their specific “inspiration items”, elements that the completed films must include to ensure that their script was not written ahead of time. The teams are then given 48 hours to create a short film. With three prizes totaling over $1,000, as well as an opportunity to be in the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival 2012 line-up, local filmmakers will be running fast to get their masterpiece completed in time. All films are due Sunday April 15 between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Registration is open now and is limited to 24 teams. Interested individuals can find out more information and download complete registration materials online at http://almovingimage.org/sidewalk-scramble.html
