52 seconds of fame 

my friend doug just got back from an artists retreat in vermont, and it's going to be running this competition...

in 1895 the lumiere brothers made the cinematograph, the first movie camera/projector. they could only shoot 52 seconds, all in one take. in 1996 they got a bunch of filmmakers (spike lee, david lynch, john boorman, wim wenders, peter greenaway, james ivory etc) to use a restored version of the camera and make a 52 second movie. apparently the results were crap.

so this retreat is having a competition open to the public where you have to make a 52 second movie. it can have cuts, edits and takes, it just has to add up to 52 seconds. competition closes next may.

let's do this.
