The Shoot Out Cheyenne (TSOC) 24-hour film making festival is set for October 15 – 17. TSOC asks teams of filmmakers to trust their courage, imagination and determination by making a 7-minute film in just 24 hours. The challenge and skill involved becomes evident with the list of required technical, material, and timing ‘rules’ for creating the films. The event is open to the public – including teams consisting of family members, colleagues from work and video hobbyists to professionals. In 2009, TSOC attracted 21 teams from around Wyoming, Colorado and Kansas. Each film must be edited linearly “in-camera” meaning there is no external or nonlinear editing allowed. Teams may rewind tape, preview and tape over what was last shot. Completed films are then returned to the event organizers no later than 24 hours after the start of the event. All films must include five of eleven items announced at the start of the event in “The Brief ” which ensures that films are made during the designated time, and not pre-produced ahead of time. All films are judged with the Top 10 Films screening on Sunday afternoon, October 17. “To Be A Cowboy” produced by Emily Robinson of the Best of the West Film Club at the University of Wyoming won the award for Best In-Camera Editing. Robinson’s team was one of 21 entered in the 2009 edition of The For more information check out the website at Shoot Out Cheyenne 24 hour film or call 307-509-0182. making festival.
