This year's flavor: Monsters !

Can you make a Science Fiction, Horror and/or Fantasy movie in two days?

The Rules (handy pdf)

  • All filming, recording, editing must take place within the spaces defined (the Hotel area) during ApolloCon (from the point you sign in until the deadline which is 12:01 am Sunday Morning).
  • Sign-in begins when the movie room opens on Friday. This gives .you just over 28 hours.
  • No filming unwilling participants.
  • No filming in off-limits areas (this includes panels.)
  • No "Adult" material (no nudity, graphic violence or sexual situations)!
  • Keep everything PG rated, as these films may be viewed by minors.
  • Films should be no longer than 20 minutes, and must be presented in a format that the media room can display.
  • Acceptable formats are DVD, MPG, AVI OGG, MOV and MKV. Most codecs are accepted. If you are unsure please submit a sample for the movie room to experiment on so that we can determine if there will be any difficulties.
  • While the competition is open to any film meeting these qualifications, sticking to the theme is strongly encouraged.
  • And this year's theme is Movie Monsters! The star of your show needs to be a Monster of your creation in the great giant monster tradition. Remember this must be done in the ApolloCon hotel area over the course of the conference.

For more information, contact our Media Room Directors.
