"Eight Teams. Eight Films. One Grand Prize."
TAKE 8 FILM FESTIVAL: BATTLEFIELD is the fifth round of our TAKE 8 FILM FESTIVAL. We are accepting eight teams of up to eight actors each -- all competing for one grand prize: Your own television series greenlit for four episodes broadcast throughout Washington and on Amazon Prime.
Here are the rules for the BATTLEFIELD round:
All teams will shoot entirely in an abandoned quarry.
All teams are required to include no less than four actors and no more than eight actors.
Actors can only be participate on one team.
All teams will work with BFP to develop their series and, if they win, they will be producers with say in writers, cast and plots.
All props are welcome... but you have to hike them into the location.
That's right. Instead of making eight short films, we'll be working closely with each team to develop eight television series! Team captains will select a genre and write an eight-word plot as always. They'll also cast their own teams. Teams will meet with BFP to develop their series and then BFP will write the teaser scripts based on team feedback. In October 2017, teasers for each series will be filmed. Teams will receive their scripts eight days prior to their chosen shoot date.
Next, BFP will edit, score and upload all eight teasers. Viewers will watch the teasers and vote online and at a red carpet premiere in December 2017, selecting the Best Actor, Best Actress and the Grand Prize: Which of the eight series should actually be made?
