Third Annual CCM 48-Hour Film Festival Unites UC Students to Make Movies

It’s time once more for the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music’s 48-Hour Film Festival, which challenges teams of UC students to create a short film in only 48 hours.

The clock starts ticking at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18 when students are split into eight teams to create their short films. The festival culminates at 7 p.m. on Sunday, November 20 in a free public screening of each team’s film at UC’s MainStreet Cinema in the Tangeman University Center, which is adjacent to CCM.

Any UC student is invited to participate in the third annual festival. To join, students must submit an application to CCM Acting professor and Department Chair Richard Hess by 5 p.m. on Monday, November 14, 2016. All students who apply will be placed on a team. Visit the CCM website for application instructions.

Participants are randomly assigned to one of eight teams of about eight to ten students each. Each team is given a prop, a line of dialogue and a theme that must be present in the film, and then it’s off to the races. The resulting films will be approximately five minutes long.

While many of the participants are Electronic Media majors, all UC students are encouraged to participate. Last year, students from biomedical engineering to composition and marketing competed alongside CCM students. The festival needs more than just actors and directors; each team will ideally be outfitted with a sound engineer, a make-up artist, a film editor and a composer to write the score, as well as other personnel.

Some films and participants will win awards such as best film, best actor or actress, best editing and best cinematography. In 2015 Sunday, won four out of the five awards; the film is available to watch on YouTube (warning: mature language).

The general public is invited to the festival’s screening party at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 20. Films will be screened in UC’s MainStreet Cinema in the Tangeman University Center.

ONECCM – The Path Forward

curve_template_box

Dear CCM Community,

The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music is excellent in so many ways – we have unparalleled faculty, the magnificent CCM Village, generations of successful alumni and so much more. CCM truly is a premiere performing and media arts institution. Continuing this excellence requires us to set our sights even higher. To do this requires us to ask ourselves challenging and probing questions, and we need your participation to be successful.

ONECCM – The Path Forward is our way of asking critical questions of each other and of leaving no stone unturned. We need your assistance and voice in this process, and we are asking for input from every willing faculty, staff and student of the college, of alumni, friends and community members. Our goal is to have 100% participation from CCM’s faculty and staff. ONECCM – The Path Forward will be the way we differentiate ourselves as a premiere performing and media arts institution.

For more information about ONECCM – The Path Forward, please visit ccm.uc.edu/about/oneccm. You can also complete the ONECCM Survey by clicking here:

This survey will take no more than ten minutes and is your opportunity to have a voice in creating the Path Forward for CCM. There will be other opportunities to participate in focus groups later in the academic year. This is a participatory process and the survey data is being collected anonymously by our strategic partners. Thank you in advance for participating. Having as many voices as possible will create a robust vision for our future.

This is a critical moment in our history. Change is happening all around us, and CCM is adapting to those changes, so please assist us in this quest to become an even more excellent CCM.

Respectfully yours,
