I made a movie

- written by Zeeslag

So a couple of weeks ago I got the idea to join a movie contest. The idea was to make a 40+ minute feature film during the Oscars.

I somehow managed to convince some of my friends online to join me. During the 3 hours of the Oscars you had to shoot all the footage that you wanted to use in the film. You can imagine how hard it would be to make a movie like this. None of my friends had experience with filmmaking, acting or making a good storyline. Bit ironic, right? An award show for movies made during the Oscars so you don't have to watch the Oscars.

We had a week to edit all the footage and in just 5 days I send it in. It was tough and I could not make it to 40 minutes, I came just one minute short. I even dragged the credits and added all the bloopers in. It might still be considered as a lot of other people also came short of the 40 minutes. I thought about 40 entries would come out of it but just after a week the contest was over and I was surprised to see the total. 580 entries. Never expected to see that many entries.

The film is available here. It is not great but it is not the worst either. A whole playlist of all the entries can be found here if you want to see what others have made.

Because of the high number of entries, I doubt that I will win one of the awards. Though it was a lot of fun to make and would like to do something like this next year too.
