A special challenge is being issued to all writers, actors, videographers, storytellers and other creative - adventurous types who want to have a great time in a fun and exciting new way. Acadiana Open Channel is hosting a 3 Minute Movie Challenge. The idea is simple, teams of 3 have 3 days to produce a 3 minute movie using 3 plot points that will be picked at random. Teams can register together or individuals can register and be placed on teams at the opening party. No experience necessary, just a creative and adventurous spirit! AOC will host a kick-off event on Friday, September 17th at 6 p.m. to assign teams and select the 3 random plot points. Once teams and plot points are selected the players have until Monday, September 20th to write and produce a 3 minute program. That's it. The content can be anything, a comedy, documentary, interview, animation whatever tells the story best. Entries are not limited to anything except the big 3's; that's 3 people, 3 days, 3 plot points and 3 minutes! AOC will make cameras and editing equipment available to teams that need them. Supplies are limited. On Monday night, September 20th at 6 p.m. entries will be voted on by all the players at at special viewing party held at AFCM.
