It’s a wrap on this year’s 24-Hour Video Race.
After 24 (short) hours of filming and editing, and 18 (long) days of deliberation, the winners of Dallas’ 16th Annual 24-Hour Video Race have been announced.
Beginning on May 12, filmmakers of all ages and expertise were challenged to produce a short film in just 24 hours.
The film could be no longer than five minutes, and had to be submitted exactly 24 hours after the competition began. Every year, films must include a theme, prop, location, and line of dialogue revealed on the night the competition begins. The elements this year were, as follows:
Theme Finding the truth
Prop VHS tape or book
Line of dialogue “What is your name again?”
Judges also required the videos to include a native Texas tree within the film.
