Tonight in LA: 24 hour Midnight Moviemaking madness screening

Winning films created in last year’s edition of the 24 hour Moviemaking Madness competition will be screened tonight in LA. I covered the event last year for Wired Magazine, together with Gawker’sl Choire Sicha. It was probably the zaniest, most surreal 24 hours of my life. In the competition, filmmakers have exactly 24 hours to make a short digital film — writing, blocking, shooting, editing, freaking out, it all has to happen in 24 hours. No sleep ’til Brooklyn. Winner takes home $10K and a serious case of sleep dep. Snip from the announcement on tonight’s LA event:

Don’t forget to come to the Silent Movie Theater in Hollywood this Saturday for NYC Midnight’s Los Angeles Area screening of top 2003 movies followed by a Q & A session. This will be a great chance to see some award winning shorts and ask questions about the 2004 competition. Also, you may drop off your entry documents & entry fee at the info session.
