Submit to the Ten Second Film Festival!

By katherinerochester

Calling all aspiring/established/amateur filmmakers!

Film still by Dallas Cornell

Film still by Dallas Cornell

Deadline for submissions:  MONDAY, JUNE 1

Each year, after the St. Anthony Main fireworks, The Soap Factory holds the Ten Second Film Festival. This festival is a raucous, outdoor screening of the top 100 funniest, dumbest, cleverest, and sometimes most thought-provoking ten second films you’ll ever see. Anyone can submit a film and they’re usually pretty low-tech (as is perfectly obvious from some of the previous years’ footage!). It’s a great opportunity to be shown at a leading art gallery. Most films are made on low-tech, alternative movie-making devices, so whip out those cell phones, digital cameras, and iphones and make some ten second magic!

Submission guidelines can be found on The Soap Factory’s website. Email all film submissions to tensecondfilmfest@gmail.com.

For inspiration, check out previous years’ winners on YouTube.

I Didn’t Sleep On It

By mark

I showed up at 6pm on Friday, to just hang with some friends up on the 4th floor, but we all found it hard not to immediately find our way over to Don’t Sleep on It. Brett and Erin started it off with a blast, having more than 20 teens making their products from “Orphan in a Box” to “Canned Galaxy.” Next was Chris, who upon giving quick instructions, had a civilization built within an hour, complete with a zoo, streets, small homes, multiple attacks with everything from paper balls to giant obelisks, and even Darth Vader waiting to give […]

Don’t Sleep On It

By Emmanuel

After working for over 50 hours in the last four days I have to say that as I walked away from Don’t Sleep On It I was extremely tired. But I found myself wishing about an hour after it finished that I was still in that small room in the California Building creating another three hour installation. Don’t Sleep On It was a huge success. Aside from the issue of the time-lapse video going out for 12 hours, everything went off without a hitch. This was due in large part to all of the artists, and their commitment to keep […]

Building Projection

By nick

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X85A1dCpzsI[/youtube]     This was projected on a building in San Francisco. They used multiple projectors synced up to a computer with special software that calculates the distance, angle and surface shape of the building. I guess it only took them a few days to set all of it up.
