Bradric Productions and The McCarty Metro, are pleased to announce the eighth annual McCarty Metro Film Project. The event will take place from May 12 - May 19, 2019. The event is open to all.

OVERVIEW: Starting Sunday, May 12 at 9pm Eastern Time, you will have 7 full days to write, shoot, and edit a short film that meets the set guidelines laid out in “Details” below.

RECOGNITION:  All entries will be featured on the McCarty Metro, and Bradric Productions website.

DETAILS: On Sunday May 12 at 9pm, we shared these 4 specific details that MUST be part of your video…..

 HERE ARE THE 4 SPECIFIC RULES YOUR VIDEO WILL HAVE TO ABIDE BY...

THE CONCEPT OF THE VIDEO:
Time Travel! One or more people in the video time travel forward or backwards to meet people in the past or future.

A PHRASE THAT MUST BE SAID IN YOUR VIDEO: "I'm not talking to you anymore!"

AN OBJECT THAT MUST APPEAR: 
A suitcase, garment bag, or some other storage item a traveler would take with them.

ONE OTHER REQUIREMENT IN YOUR VIDEO: Someone in the video must be seen 'Hitting The Woah'. Not sure what 'hitting the woah' is? Check out this video.

ED NOTE: Your film submission must abide by the 4 required details listed above. (Your film must fit our overall concept of time travel, and must include our posted phrase "I'm not talking to you anymore", and must include our posted object of a travel bag or suitcase, and must meet the 4th requirement of someone 'hitting the woah'! We do this to ensure that no films are written, shot, or edited before the beginning of our contest.

When finished, you need to save your video on your computer.
Go to http://www.youtube.com and create a YouTube account (If you don't have one already). 
Click the Upload button to upload your video. While uploading, you can provide more information. In the description of the video, please provide the names of everyone involved in your production, the production team name if you have one (ours is Bradric Productions). Title and artist for any music you use.
Once the upload is complete, YouTube will provide you with the web address that your video can be viewed from by us and others. Send that url to the McCarty Metro at mccartymetro@gmail.com. Besides the link, provide us the name of the video, info of your staff, actors, etc., and production team name.
Your finished film must be uploaded before Sunday, May 19th at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

Videos can be no longer than 4 minutes in length.
Videos cannot include any explicit content (Obscene language, nudity, sexual situations, etc.)
Videos must portray our posted concept, use one of our posted phrases, one of our posted objects, and must meet a specific 4th requirement
Videos must be uploaded on or before Sunday, May 19th at 11:59PM Eastern Time.
Videos cannot contain copyrighted music. Only music you create, own the rights to, or that is public domain and royalty free is permissible.

Q: I don’t have a nice camera. And all I’ve got is Windows Movie Maker/iMovie. Can I still compete?
A: Absolutely! If you have a good script, we don’t care how poor the video quality is. Just do the best with what you have- we want EVERYONE to compete!

Q: Does my film have to be ABOUT the phrase and object I choose?
A: Not at all. As long as the phrase is spoken at some point in the film, and the object is in the camera’s view at some point in the film, you are good!

Q: What kind of music is permissible for inclusion in my film?
A: Either music you created, own the rights to, or public domain, royalty-free music. There are a ton of websites that offer this kind of music for download, completely free. Just because you own a band’s CD does not give you the “rights” to use it in your own production.

(Come back to this page often- it’ll be updated with more FAQs regularly leading up to the event!)

Those are all of the official rules! If you have any further questions, send an email to mccartymetro@gmail.com, and I will reply to you or post it here.
