3 Minute Film
Holland is extremely excited to announce the 5th Annual 3 Minute Film Competition! This awesome event is a collaboration between Holland, the Nevada Museum of Art and KNPB Channel 5.
Any genre (western, horror, experimental, music vids, comedy, mockumentary/documentary, skate and snow vids, adapted mini-screenplays and stories), any style (B&W, super saturated technicolor, 1920s grainy style, animation, stop-motion, high-def), any technology (shoot it on a fancy camera, a thrift store find, or your iPhone, we don’t care)–all accepted! Get creative and DO IT.
Here’s the deal:
1. Make a film
2. Keep 3 minutes or less
3. Format it as a Quicktime*, MOV or MPG4 file and put it on a DVD or thumbdrive
4. Drop off or mail to: Holland, 140 Vesta Street, Reno, 89502
*Make sure if you’re doing Quicktime, it’s not a Final Cut Quicktime file–those are too big for us to watch and run.
DEADLINE: MONDAY, APRIL 29, 2013 @ 6PM
The top selections will screen on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at the Nevada Museum of Art. Killer prizes will be given to the Jury Award Winner and the Audience Award Winner.
VERY IMPORTANT! We encourage you to use licensed music, creative commons/public domain music, or get permission for your scores. There are a ton of local artists and bands that have agreed to donate music or score your film, which is super cool! Just shoot us an email (hollandreno[@]gmail.com) if you’d like a list of those musicians or need any assistance. This is a big deal this year, because the Top Selections will be screened on KNPB Channel 5 (our PBS station!) during a special 3-Minute Film program they are creating just for this event! The bummer is, if you don’t have permission for the music, your film won’t be able to screen on PBS.
Prizes include $$$, gift certificates, rad film books, special screenings and more!
In the meantime, enjoy our 2012 trailers!
