Attack of the 50-Ft. Reels

This notice came in from James Parrish at Flicker:

"Back by popular demand the Richmond Flicker is offering its almost-annual Attack of the 50-Ft. Reels again this year. This is the seventh year -- last year we did a special Kodachrome 40 tribute instead of the 50-Ft. Reels -- and we’re taking entries! Here’s how it works: the first 20 people to fill out the entry form and turn it in with a $25 entry fee get one roll of Super 8 film + processing and the opportunity to make a three-minute movie. The catch is you have to edit in-camera -- that is, you have to film in the order you want each scene to appear (unlike the way most movies are made). When you finish, return the film to Flicker and we'll send them all off for processing.

"To add a little intrigue, the first time the filmmakers get to see their films is the night of the September Flicker.
Entry deadline: Friday, June 2 (or when the 20 slots are filled). Visit the Flicker web site or contact James Parrish at for more information."
