Schedule for Crash Student
9:30am | Teams assemble
10:00am – 5:00pm | Crash Filmmaking on the Seattle Center Campus
5:30 – 6:00pm | Crash Film Screening

Crash Rules
Films must be no longer than three-minutes and must include the four Crash elements. The four elements include a genre, a type of action, a character’s name, and a line of dialogue.

Team Needs
Each team must provide their own equipment including a video camera (can be a cell phone), a way to transfer footage to an editing system, computer with editing software, burnable dvd or flash drive. If you don’t have any of these, no worries. Show up and we will find a group that has equipment that you can join. There is some equipment at SIFF as well, but is great to have students using materials that they have at home so they can learn on what is available to them. Also, plan to bring any costumes or props that you might want to use with you that day.
