52 Hour Raven Film Contest
The 52 Hour Raven Film Contest is a “make a film in a weekend” competition designed specifically for the Greater Houston Area High School students. Founded in 2013 by the new film department at San Jacinto College Central, the contest was envisioned as a fun way to bring top student film makers from around the Greater Houston Area together to learn from and experience the work of their peers.
During the weekend of the event, every team will receive the same prompt (see the prompt link below) detailing the genre, a prop and some lines of dialogue. Each of these elements is required in a completed film. You and your team then have from Friday until Sunday Night, to create a dynamic short film. All creation must occur within the competition period: writing, rehearsing, shooting, editing, graphics, etc.
The Competition is held in January, and participating schools are encouraged to open their video editing labs to students on the Sunday of the Event. Showings of the completed films will be held within two to three weeks after the filming weekend at the campus of San Jacinto College Central Department of Theatre and Film.
Through January 9th
January 10th to January 23rd
