48hr Antarctic film competition
So this weekend has been a very busy one as we have competed in the 48hr Antarctic film festival. Many bases from different countries took part from around Antarctica. I will link some to the site once I get them. I think around 12 bases in total. It went like this.
Friday night we received 5 elements. Once we announce the 5 elements in our dining room we have to make a 5 minute film which includes each of these elements in the story and do it in 48hrs.
The five elements were:
Character: A temperamental, continental chef
Dialogue: Do you want to buy a dog?
Props: ‘Toilet roll’ and ‘a comedy head piece’
Sound: Opening a can of drink
We then came up with a story of ‘The quest for the golden roll’. Everyone set about with different jobs and the entire base got involved. We then started filming on Saturday and had 95% of the film shot by dinner time on Saturday. We then downloaded the footage on Saturday night and spent the rest of the weekend mainly editing and collecting sound effects and shot our rolling ball scene (as the paint had just dried on the third attempt of making it) and the final scene using the toilet roll.
The film had to be 5 minutes long but we added 3 minutes of Bollywood styly credits at the end. Take a look below.
