Scripts must be exactly twenty-four shots and can feature one or two actors that writers bring with them -- or cast from one or two of the DiMarco actors. Writers can also act in their own films, if they wish, for a total of three actors. Can writers join forces and write a script together? Yes! But each writer must have a ticket. Also, if you have a camera and you want to write and shoot your film, you may absolutely do that! Otherwise, Blue Forge Productions will shoot for you.
Can actors sign up for Forge Flashpoint 5? Yes! Actors can sign up and BFP will write a script for them. Actors are allowed to bring up to two of their actor friends with them or ask for one or two of the DiMarco actors (Brianne, Faith or Maxwell) to act with them. Films must have between one and three actors total.
Use the drop down menus below to order the appropriate ticket then message Jennifer on Facebook or email us and tell us if you're bringing actors or if you want to cast Brianne, Faith or Maxwell.
As always, all films will be compiled into a festival and viewers all over the world will be able to watch and vote for the Best Film and Best Actor for free. Winners will receive trophies and the winning film will be screened at our June 11, 2017, red carpet premiere.
A "flashpoint" is the critical moment at which someone creates significant action and the "forge" is where that creation happens. Blue Forge Productions doesn't enter festivals or contests. We focus our energy on making films that viewers will pay to rent and buy. To us, that's what a studio is. And we want there to be more studios out there who understand that the traditional method of filmmaking -- requiring hundreds of thousands of dollars to make a film -- is not the only way or even the best way.
