LAUNCH EVENT – THIS SATURDAY, JULY 30TH
It’s nearly here! After months of waiting, The 21-Day Filmmaking Competition 2011 is finally about to begin. This year we welcome at least 55 Teams of filmmakers from all over the U.S., Canada, and Hong Kong!
If you’re local, don’t miss the:
Project Twenty1 Launch Event & Networking Party
Saturday, July 30th, 2 pm – 6 pm EDT
Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge
1336 Chestnut St. (map)
Philadelphia, PA 19107 USA
FREE, all ages welcomed! RSVP on EventBrite RSVP on Facebook
Come one, come all! Many attendees will be making a film in the three weeks that follow, so meet enough people, and odds are good you’ll end up working on at least one film this August, doing anything from acting to composing music to graphic design to PA work. The Launch Event will conclude with the announcing of the 2011 Rules, followed by the reveal of this year’s “Secret Element” that all the 21-Day films must include. All the filmmakers will then set off to make their films, and they’ll be due back at Lucky Strike on August 20th by 6:00pm EDT.
Win hundreds of dollars in door prizes from Sony Creative Software! Want to know what to expect? Check out clips from prior years’ Launch Events!
Not local? We’ve got you covered! We’ll be e-mailing the Element to all Team Leaders as soon as we announce it so everybody has the exact same 21 days to make their films.
Special thanks to event sponsor Lucky Strike for hosting!
LAST 2 DAYS – 21-DAY COMPETITION TEAM SIGNUPS
We’ve heard it all month, from filmmakers all over: “Is it too late to sign up? I just heard about it! How do I sign up as a Team?” So, due to overwhelming demand (and because we’re just so damn nice), we’ve kept open the 2011 21-Day Filmmaking Competition signups until the Launch Event. Take advantage of it now or hold your peace until 2012!
For those of you who have signed up already, don’t worry, there’s reward for your punctuality. The Early Deadline was $100 back in March, the Late Deadline was $150… if you decide to join us now, it’s $200. It’s only fair to the Teams that were first on board. But we still want to give everybody a fair chance to participate, because trust us, and ask any of our prior years’ Participants… it’s the best $200 you’ll ever spend on a film. If you don’t believe us, check out the Prizes page, featuring over $1000 in software from Sony Creative Software and Final Draft, not to mention the guaranteed theatrical screening of your film, and the MASSIVE amount of marketing and promotion you will receive to other festivals once your complete your project!
You will be showcasing your filmmaking skills up against competitors from all over the U.S. as well as the UK and Greece! Among them, last year’s winners for Best Film, Audience Awards, Best Animation, Best Writing, Best Soundtrack, Best Marketing, Best Acting and the EPIC Award.
We promise nothing short of a great time, and at its best, perhaps an actual life-changing experience.
Your friends, as always,
Stephanie Yuhas, Executive Producer
Matt Conant, Director
