Alamo Drafthouse Theater


May 27th – A short screening with Q & A and a compilation of information, tips and tricks to help guerilla filmmaking, like the 48 and ONS.
June 17th – Audio Twins SEMINAR! Tyler Thompson and Phil Cattell! They’re pros.
June 20th – ONE NIGHT STAND, at THE TIVOLI! Kickoff is at 8am Thou Mayest, 10 hours later, we meet at The Tivoli.
This year we’d like to try something a bit different for the ONS.

Each team will have one person embedded in the team whose job is to shoot behind-the-scenes material. They are not part of the team. Think of it as a journalist embedded in the trenches with the army reporting on a war.
Or this might need to be more than one person. It might be a small team of it’s own.
Their job is to record what goes on with the team they are following, the good and the bad.
Then they will put together a rough edit and that will be screened following the competition screening, while the judges make their decision.

June 24th – Film Society, Altman Center Fundraiser
July 16th – 26th – KC FRINGE FESTIVAL
