The Third Annual 48-Hour Film Slam took place February 25-27, 2011 with a free screening of all entries on Sunday, 27th at 8 p.m. in McConnell Auditorium. At the manditory rules, genre and equipment meeting on February 25th at 5 p.m. in the Communication Department Lobby the following requried elements were drawn: character = "Casandera," occupation = "Store Clerk," and the required prop = "rake."
The theme for the 2011 competition was, "It was beauty that killed the beast," and was required to be used in each entry as a required line of dialogue.
Competition was pretty strong between the seven (7) teams and each turned in wonderfully original films... However, in the end, the judges and audiences made their choices for those deserving of special recognition. Below are the winning entries selected by our panels of judges and voted for by an enthusastic audience of nearly 200 individuals!
C-Complex (Survival— Best Technical) A young girl is haunted by her past and deadly visions she can't shake.
The Rakist (Horror— Best Directing & Best of Festival) A rake in the dark!
The Calamity of Captain Striker (Super Hero— Best Performances) Sometimes hope comes in the form of a lazer beam to the chest.
Wasteland Warriors (Disaster— Best Script) Neighbors Cole & Ben set off to survive in a post-apocalyptic world of savages.
