2018 Inaugural HHM Film Slam Event

About our Inaugural 48-Hour HHM Film Slam event — September 2018.

2018 Inaugural HHM Film Slam

This was the first HHM Film Slam. It was a 48-hour event that occurred Friday, September 14, 2018 at 7:00pm and Sunday, September 16, 2018 at 7:00pm. This was the Official Time Period for producing a 4-7 minute short film, script through submission.

During the Hell’s Half Mile Film & Music Festival, awards were announced and the winning film was screened as a festival selected film.

 

About Assignment Criteria

These criteria are announced at Kick-off. All criteria must appear in the short films and the film must be produced in the designated timeframe to be eligible for awards. 

Character: Must make an appearance but does not need to be a main character.

Prop: Just needs to be seen.

Line Of Dialogue: Must be said word for word.

Genre: Randomly chosen by the spin of a wheel at Kick-off. You will spin twice and get to choose from those two genres. You MAY combine your randomly chosen genre with another, however it must be solidly presented as your main genre, and must be listed on your film as such.

Note: If you land on the same genre twice you get to chose whichever genre you’d like to film in.
