Students age 11-19 compete for prizes and fame in Tibbits Second Annual 10-Day Film Contest sponsored by Tibbits Theatre and Beyond (T-TAB). Random drawings will determine                                                    each team’s:

  • Film Genre
  • Character to be used
  • Required prop to be used in the video
  • Line of dialogue to be used

(This ensures that no team starts working on their video prior to June 18)

Winner of the 2016 contest, “The Adventures of Jeff and Ace.”

Teams of up to 5 people will write, direct, act in, and edit their videos which are required to be between 3 and 6 minutes in length. Further contest rules will be provided here as we get closer to the event.

Teams can use any type of camera that is available to them. Tibbits has equipment that can be borrowed. Workshops on basic storytelling, acting, videography, sound, and EDITING will be held at Tibbits during the ten-day production period. Appointments can also be made to use editing software and receive help from Tibbits staff.
