This is a reminder to all of those who haven't signed up for the 49-hour film festival yet, you can still sign up! There is a maximum of 5 people per group, but there is no set minimum so if you want to compete alone then you may do so.
For those of you who have signed up already, then we will be meeting at the top of the steps of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts by the front entrance at 5:00PM. There you will be given your prompt for the video. Hope to see you all there and good luck!
It's almost here! We are about one week away from having our annual 49-Hour Film Festival were you get to compete against other people to make one fantastical video in 49 hours. Why is it 49 hours you say? Because its during Daylight Savings weekend that's why!
