Make a Film in 24-Hours: Impossible -Right?

Not if you are part of FilmBoot24, the program run by Cinema Ed, a South Orange-based non-profit that uses independent film as a teaching tool to help high school students connect with their curriculum. Cinema Ed launched FilmBoot24 this year in collaboration with Drew University, Valley Arts and the Orange School District to create six short films in just 24-hours. Organized in teams and mentored by professional from the film industry, Drew University and Orange High School students accepted the challenge of making a movie in one day. Not only did they have the deadline pressure, they had to use themes developed by Cinema Ed and the Orange School District Director of Curriculum. Plus, every team had to use the same prop in their film: a deck of cards.

The films that were produced and judged by filmmaking pros wowed the crowd at the screening and awards ceremony the next day. Learn more about FilmBoot24 at www.cinemaed.org.
