Our Mission

The HHM Film Slam Challenge was created with a simple goal in mind – Remove all the usual excuses and provide a simple framework for aspiring filmmakers to ‘get out there’ and shoot something that they can see on the big screen.

 

Ugh! The Dreaded Paperwork!

Boo!! Paperwork is just no fun at all!

Sadly, it’s a fact of filmmaking.

Your paperwork can be scanned and uploaded with your film or it can be emailed to Tammie at info@hhmfilmslam.com.

All forms and releases must be turned in within a week of submission of your work. It’s best to complete forms as you go and submit them together with your film. Cast and crew releases must match end credits.
