To develop, shoot and edit a film in such a short period of time challenges your creativity, time-management skills, quick-thinking and your ability to adapt to new situations. All successful filmmakers have these skills. It is equally important to have a dedicate team behind you to collaborate with.
I strongly encourage emerging filmmakers to participate in 24 hour challenges as it forces you to take risks and think outside of the box. You will learn more about yourself then you expect.
Toronto Youth Shorts has been running a 24 hour challenge for the past six years. If you have any ideas for us, send us a message!
