Yo Ho Ho – it’s the end of 2018, it’s the festive season and what a fantastic vintage year it has been… Thank you for all your continued love and support with One Stop Films – it’s much appreciated….
The BIG news is this year, One Stop is 10 years old and to celebrate this we are making it part of the Christmas Short competition xXx
We are calling it “One Stop – One Shot”, and this is #OSSFILM19 – one roll 10 minutes.
This year we’ve changed the idea it’s one day – one shot. We will give you either a camera crane or Steadicam with a 35mm Arri LT and a 1000ft mag x 3. You have the morning to rehearse and the afternoon to shoot. If you shoot on the crane, grips will be supplied for you. We will also supply either a Steadicam or crane operator to assist in the shot.
The heroes at CHEAT grading will do a free conform, one days grade and a free digital output for your short www.cheatit.co
One Stop Films is trying to encourage people to get out there and shoot on film. We want you to sit down with your friends and come up with an idea for a short that is going to inspire us. Think outside the box, think about what devices you have available to you as part of your package… When choosing a winner, we are looking for creative originality – what will work, what will hold in one shot? How would the crane or Steadicam work well with these limitations?
The Rules are simple;
By January 1st 2019 submit a one page synopsis of your idea and a one page description on how it will be achieved. Entries will be judged throughout January with the winner being announced on 1st February.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING RULES VERY CAREFULLY:
1/ You must live and work in the UK.
2/ The synopsis and description must reach us by January 1st. If you send us a script, or anything more than a one page synopsis and a one page description, your entry will not be included. They will not even be read, this is very important so please understand this rule needs to be followed.
3/ You must shoot your short within 6 months of winning the prize.
4/ You must supply your own insurance to cover the kit hire.
5/ Any equipment is subject to availability and at the managers discretion.
6/ If you use any grip equipment you must have a qualified grip working on your short.
7/ Only the camera and grip package will be supplied by One Stop Films – please ensure you have your own producer (!)
