Three Months Until 48 Hours

Registration has opened for the Albuquerque leg of the 48 Hour Film Project. In this annual filmmaking challenge, teams of eager moviemakers are given a few touchstones (a genre, a prop, a line of dialogue, a character) and have just 48 hours to write, shoot, edit and premiere their short films. Albuquerque has had fantastic participation in years past, and several local films have gone on to national and international glory. If you’re interested in getting a crew together and making a run at it, log on to Screenings of the finished films will take place July 15, 16 and 18 at the KiMo Theatre.

Eat Brains, Have Ball

Local independent video store Burning Paradise is celebrating its seventh anniversary, and you’re invited to the party. On Friday, May 7, starting at 9 p.m., Burning Paradise will host a full-on Zombie Ball at Burt’s Tiki Lounge (313 Gold SW). Zombie attire is, of course, highly encouraged for this sort of thing. Bands include Dead On Point Five, Jay Walker and the Pedestrians, Sabertooth Cavity, and Caustic Lye. It’s free to get in, which leaves you plenty of money to spend on booze! This is a 21+ party. Sorry, underage zombies.

Producers Needed

The newly revived Duke City Shootout is looking for producers to steward its short (12-minute) films and newly added music videos to completion. Producing and/or production management experience is a plus. Producers will participate in the final round of script/video treatment judging (taking place in mid-to-late May). Preproduction will begin as soon as the winners have been selected and have signed their contracts. The 10th annual script-to-screen festival is scheduled to take place July 23 through 31. If you’re interested in jumping on board, please e-mail for more information.
