The 24

The 24 is a competition in which participating teams have 24 hours to write, direct, film, and edit a music video to a song provided. This competition has a reputation for being fast paced, stressful, and sleepless, but most of all as a fun weekend spent by a group of students doing something they love.


December 3rd, 2016 at 3pm – December 4th, 2016 at 3pm
At 3pm at December 3rd group leaders will be emailed the song for this year’s competition. From that time, teams have 24 hours to script a story, plan their shots, and edit it all together. Finished films must be compressed and uploaded by 3pm on December 4th to be eligible for judging.

Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and cash for popcorn to our annual drive-in style screening at Northwood High School. Friends and Family of all ages are welcome to come watch all the entries to this year’s competition. After the screening Orange County Film Festival nominations will be announced!
