Aw, He Lost His Man Hat and Other 24 Hour Video Race Entries
Starting this evening at 6:15, you can watch the entries in this year's 24 Hour Video Race, which began at 11:59 p.m. on Friday -- "with a theme, prop, location and line of dialogue assignment for the film," says the Web site far more succinctly than I could have -- and concluded, like, 24 hours and one minute later. Screenings will take place till Thursday evening, and it costs but three small dollars to see the entries; the complete schedule's available right here. The finalists will screen a week from tonight, at which time the winners in each category will be announced.
Course, if you want to get a jump on things, a few of the contestants have posted their entries to YouTube, naturally. Here's a list, more or less, of those currently available. (This one didn't come up for whatever reason.) And we're including one here just for grins, only because I love the title ("Man Scouts") and the accompanying description ("When men become aware that they are out of touch with their true manliness, they are often led to the Man Scouts, where men can be men, with other men, in a not gay way"). --Robert Wilonsky
