Make A Film On Coney Island

From the Archipelago web site:

Sign-up between now and July 29th to take part in our 72-Hour shootout on Coney-Island. We will set you up with a team of other graduate students who want to make films, and you’ll have 72 hours to write, shoot, edit and submit your film to us. Sound crazy? Yeah, but so is Coney Island.

Bring with you as much or as little as you know about the site, but take the time to do get a little acquainted (see our reading link below). We’ll set you up with your groups a week before the event, then on Thursday August 2nd, we’ll meet at 9pm in Wood Auditorium, Avery Hall to present the site, and the criteria for the shootout. Spend that night to formulate your plan of attack, write, think, prepare; then on Friday you’ll pick up your equipment from the School of Architecture’s A/V Department and have until Sunday 10pm to finish your movie.

Yes, finish.

Bring your final DVDs (or movie files if you run out of time) to Wood Auditorium on Sunday, and see your work on the big screen.

Sign up on this site, do your research, take a trip out there if you like (but we suggest not pre-planning too much, we’ll be throwing some monkey wrenches your way). If you want to do some reading, Rem Koolhaas in Delirious New York writes from both a critical and historic perspective on Coney Island. We’ve set up some of the pages for you to read in this pdf document in case you don’t have the book: Delirious New York: Coney Island.
See you there!
