#NewTVChallenge: Success

NewTV’s first One Week Short Film Challenge has come to an end and what a success it was! First and foremost, I’d like to thank all seven teams that signed up and participated in this inaugural event. To recap, each team had exactly one week (from February 15-22) to create a short film. All aspects of the production (scripting, shooting, editing, etc.) had to be done within that one-week time frame. But, here’s the catch: each team had a required character, prop and line of dialogue that needed to be incorporated into their films. The required materials were as follows: Character: Llyod (or Lindsay) McClellan – billionaire Prop: Umbrella Line: “You might want to put gloves on for this.” The films were very diverse. Each group used the mandatory materials in their own unique way and really took the creative aspect to another level. My main concern going into the event was that I would receive many films of the same genre. Since there was (yet another) blizzard on the kickoff day, I was not able to have the groups randomly select their genre as I originally intended. Instead, I let them choose their own. To my surprise, the groups made films of all different genres: suspense thrillers, thought-provoking dramas and even comedies. The winners will be selected this coming week. The top 3 films will be screened at an event at NewTV in our screening room, as well as at an event during the Newton Festival of the Arts in May. Starting next week, you can watch the films on NewTV’s Education Channel and they will be available for online streaming at I would like to thank everyone once again for allowing this awesome event to happen. I’m looking forward to running it again next year and plan on making it bigger and better!

An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has
been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me lunch simply
because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this....
Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this subject
here on your internet site.
