Eighty-Three Percent

Received an email today explaining that 79 of the 95 teams that entered the International Documentary Challenge finished their films on time. It went on to explain that the 12 finalists will be announced by April 2.

If you figure each team made a five-minute documentary, then the judges have to watch six-and-a-half hours of short documentaries....

Real Life, Filmed Real Fast

I'm participating in the International Documentary Challenge.

This morning at 8 a.m. received a choice between two genres and a theme -- and now need to make a short documentary matching that. It will be about 5 minutes in length, and has to be sent off postmarked on Monday.

I've just text messaged the six members of our team, and now we have to decide what film to make and how to make it.
