Films from the Express’ 2011 24-Hour Digital Film Festival

Last week, the Express held its annual 24-Hour Film Festival, sponsored by Trumer Pils, Ex’pression College for Digital Arts, and Rooz Cafe.

Ten 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, seven 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 Ex’pression College for Digital Arts.

Judges included Yael Braha, Program Director for Motion Graphic Design: Ex’pression College of Digital Arts; Tracey Snelling; Oakland Visual Artist, San Pablo Arts District Fund; and Kelly Vance, Film Reviewer: East Bay Express.

Thanks to all who participated. Here are the results:

First Place : Team 9: Robot Destroyer, Golly the Rainmaker

2nd Place : Team 1: S’up Doc, A Scientific Method

3rd Place : Team 7: The Critical Carolers, Carbon Dating
