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.

At 3pm at January 11th 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 January 12th to be eligible for judging.
