UK Libraries, Media Depot Host First Ever 48 Hour Student Film Race
On March 24, the University of Kentucky Libraries, Media Depot and Smart Campus Initiative will kick off the first ever campus-wide “48 Hour Film Race,” an exciting opportunity for students to make a movie – write, shoot, and edit – in just 48 hours. Students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to participate.
Participating students are invited to make a short film with five film elements – genre, character, prop, location, and a line of dialogue – all drawn from a hat over one weekend. This year’s mandatory film element challenges students to film using only their smart devices; phones, iPads, and/or tablets.
The event has two components:
Check-in and Kick-off Meeting: March 24 | 6 pm | Young Library, Media Depot
Film Screening & Award Ceremony: March 31 | 6 pm | Young Library, Auditorium
