2014 Festival Criteria

Easter Eggs: If a team elects to choose an Easter Egg, the team must use the selected egg’s instructions in their film in order to earn an additional 5 points on their total judges score. If a team elects to choose an Easter Egg and does not follow the selected Egg’s instruction, 2 points will be deducted from the total of their judges score.

1. Filmmakers must use a safety pin as a prop in their film

2. The landmark that is the answer to your assigned riddle (from the color of the number on your Slam Card) must appear in your film. The riddles are as follows::

RED Riddle
I have stood in my home for over a century, yet I have been re-born many times.
Chain link surrounds me, but it is a symbol of my strength.
What I bear changes throughout every day, but I always carry the memory of covered wagons and wild bison from the plains of the West.
I am surrounded by old and new and at my feet is constant change.

Blue Riddle
What was once a house of Junk Metals now holds my worn face.
From the brick, you can almost hear my voice as it speaks of progress and poverty.
And while I wrote many things about the economy and the value of land… The words I have with me now are a mere pitch for cheap cigars.
What am I?

3. The submitted film must incorporate the assigned photograph (from the number on your Slam Card) into the theme of the film itself, crediting the picture in their projects credits using the caption below the image.
