Video and Film is no longer left in the hands of filmmakers. Anyone with access to Technology is a filmmaker!

Are you tired of watching YouTube and not having your own work featured on YouTube?
Perhaps you have a great idea and just need it to come to life?
Need a video to explain your cause, project, mission, or start up?
ALL ideas are welcome and we will hack them!

WHY: Because hackers hack! We are in the digital space and nothing is more relevant that telling a story in a digital format

WHEN: October 20, 2013 at 9am

WHERE: SudoRoom 2141 Broadway Oakland CA USA (Exit 19th Street Bart and walk up 2 blocks) for directions

WHO: Digital Media Hackers, Open to all levels of experience, Actor, Editors, Models, Screenwriters, Make up, Comedians, Dogs, etc EVERYONE

WHAT TO BRING: Bring your cameras, editing laptops, audio equipment, extra battery, scripts, whatever, props, ideas, or just bring yourself!

GOAL: You will have a searchable YouTube video for the world


Here’s the rough schedule:

• 08:30 – Doors open. Arrive and chat with your fellow movie makers.
• 09:00 – Pitching Session- Pitch a script, an idea, a prop or an unusual skill you possess. After everyone has pitched their idea we form teams.
• 10:00 – BREAK OUT Session- brainstorming / script writing / planning
• 15:00 – If you plan on finishing the editing in one day this is a pretty good time to start. Otherwise you can shoot however long you want and edit it in the days that follow the event.

Tips for success:

• Show up at 8:30 SHARP! People arriving after 9 won’t be let in (it’s locked) until after the pitching is done. This has worked great so far! Thanks for showing up on time. 🙂

• Bring equipment, scripts, props and ideas! It’s always easier to start with something than to brainstorm from nothing (although we can do that too).

• Keep the films short! 1 minute of awesomeness is better than 10 minutes nobody wants to watch!

A few films I had the honor to complete at MAFIAD (Make A Film in a Day)

A group of 4 went out to make this video.

AND ONE OF MY FAVES! Tech Giant Tim Bull is amazing in this
