Filmmakers from all over Georgia and the Southeast will be given the opportunity to make comedy shorts and have them screened live at the Plaza Theater in Atlanta. Contestants will register for the event. On the Thursday start day at midnight, we email all registered teams the mystery prop & line of dialogue that must be included in each submission. Videos are due back by Sunday at 9pm (69 hours later) in digital form. Submissions shall not exceed 3 minutes in length. Videos are judged primarily on comedy, so don’t freak out if your video quality isn’t through the roof. Hell, shoot it on an iPhone, just make it hilarious. Pack these videos with as much funny as you can, and you may just win! Registration is $69 per team, and no limit to team members.
