Distancing Distractions:  At-Home Video Challenge

The Fort Worth Film Commission and Lone Star Film Festival have partnered to present “Distancing Distractions,” a home video challenge inviting everyone to flex their creative muscles and create from within their homes during social distancing.

To participate, produce a short video using the resources you have available.  Videos should be at least :30 seconds in length but should not exceed 2 minutes.

Get creative!  There are no restrictions on where your imagination can take you.  Some ideas to get started:
      -Create a clay-mation story
      -Film a culinary tutorial
      -Practice the stop-motion technique (try using legos or building blocks to get started)
      -Show us a day-in-the-life of your pets
      -Send in a movie review
      -Star in your own lip-sync music video
      -Read or act out your favorite children’s story
      -Use a sheet to create a green screen background and showcase a new destination
      -Get physical and teach us some work out moves
      -Dance it out with some fresh choreography

Once your masterpiece is complete, email your submission to filmcommission@fortworth.com or tag @FilmFortWorth and @Lonestarfilmfest on Instagram using the hashtag #DistancingDistractions. Please make sure to tag both accounts!

If you have a private Instagram account, please be sure to email us using a file-sharing site like Dropbox, Google Drive or WeTransfer.

Please include the following with your entry:
      -Social Media Handles (Instagram and Twitter)
      -1-2 sentences about your project

All entries will be considered and those selected will be shared on the @FilmFortWorth and @Lonestarfilmfest social media pages over the next few weeks. 

As an added bonus, one lucky participant will be randomly selected to receive two all-access badges to Lone Star Film Festival this November.

Show us what you’ve got!
