Media Practice

36-hour filmmaking challenge

In November 2019, as part of CineCity film festival, Filmmaking students took part in a 36-hour filmmaking challenge. The event started with a draw in which groups received a prop, a location and a mystery parameter. These included many familiar Brighton locations alongside props such as a candle, a pitch fork, wind chimes, and a bunch of grapes. They also had to include 'cinecity' in the film. Students then worked in teams to produce 5-minute films that were screened at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (ACCA) in front of a public audience and a panel of judges. 

The winners were:

  • Best Film - Gorillas in the Mist for their film ‘Despondent’.
  • Best Effort - The Fantastic Five for ‘In the Moment’.
  • An honourable mention went to Just for Fun for ‘Mediator’.
