The SACRAMENTO COMEDY SPOT is running a 30 DAY COMEDY FILM CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone,


The SACRAMENTO COMEDY SPOT is running a 30 DAY COMEDY FILM CHALLENGE, and Futures Explored Film & Media Studio are entering a team to make a film. Students from Sacramento, Livermore and Stockton are all encouraged to apply.


How the competition works -- On Tuesday, February 9th, the COMEDY SPOT will release what the 'THEME' is for this year's films. We will then have 30 days to Write, Shoot and Edit a film (no longer than 10 minutes). All films entered will then be screened at their Online Comedy Festival in March.



If you would like to apply to be part of this, please read the following notes ----

------------------------------

1. We will be filming socially distanced, so if you are applying to be a Camera Operator, expect that either You or Someone in your household is going to be required to be an Actor in this film.


2. We will be filming on either Smartphones, or Cameras that we will deliver to the Camera Operator's houses (this is still undecided).


3. Due to the logistics of making this happen, we will only be hiring a small number of crew (see the roles below). However, we will be hiring additional Writers to help write the script.


4. Filming will take place during class time, so you may be asked to miss some of your classes to make this film. It will be up to you to let your instructors knows.

-------------------------------

HOW TO ENTER:

-------------------------------

1. Reply to this email with a) Your RESUME attached, and b) Which ROLE/S you are interested in Applying for. (If you joined Futures Explored during the Covid-19 Pandemic and have so far only attended classes Online, you are not expected to submit a RESUME. However, ff you were with Futures prior to us going Online, a Resume is required).


2. Considered candidates will then attend an interview over Zoom before roles are assigned.


APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY END OF BUSINESS WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 3RD - NO EXCEPTIONS!

-------------------------------


ROLES AVAILABLE:

DIRECTOR (x1)

CAMERA OPERATOR/ACTOR COMBINATION (x3)

EDITOR (x1)

WRITERS (x6 -- Can be combined with one of the roles above, so if you would like to be a Writer and the Director or a Camera Operator, you can apply for both)


More information about the competition can be found here: https://www.saccomedyspot.com/filmchallenge/ -- If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.


Applications received after Wednesday will not be considered.


Good Luck!

Rob
