Last week, the Express held its annual 24-Hour Film Festival. Seven teams were challenged to make a film of up to five and a half minutes in 24 hours. Each team was given a basic scenario, nine props in which to choose six, and a line of dialogue selected at random that could be spoken or visually displayed.
Screenings and judging of the films took place on Earth Day, April 22, at Chabot Space & Science Center. Judges included Peter Sahaidachny, Ex'pression College of Digital Arts; Eric Havel, Chabot Space & Science Center; and Stephen Buel, East Bay Express.
Thanks to all who participated. Here are the results:
First Place: Team 4: Yak, Golly the Rainmaker
2nd Place (Tie): Team 6: The Visible Theater, EBX-2087
Team 1: Dirt Factory, Our Future Is Today
