A PROP –
The traditional gift for a seventh anniversary is copper. So for the Slam’s seventh anniversary, each film must visually feature a penny as a prop.
This year’s location element incorporates a Spokane landmark that each film must visually include. They identified this landmark by embarking on a provided “Quest”.
Each team received a card with a colored number on it (Red or Blue). The color corresponds with one of two “Quests” a team must embark upon in order to identify the landmark.
Each film must incorporate the provided theme and was judged by how well the theme was worked into it. The theme for this year’s competition is fashion design, as explored by local fashion designers.
Each team received a card at random with a number on it. (1, 2, 3, or 4). The number on the card corresponded to one of four different themed fashion designs explained and explored by Spokane fashion designers. Each designer is featured in a video where they discuss their selected theme and design (Earth, Water, Fire or Air). The videos can be viewed below.
The films must incorporate their assigned fashion design into its theme. How they interpreted the fashion design, the theme behind it, AND the designer’s approach to expressing it and weaved it into their film is entirely up to them, but remember: each film’s score from the judges was based on how creatively they incorporated the design and the designer’s process/philosophy into the overall theme of their film.
Number 1 – Earth – Ronnie Ryno
Number 2 – Water – Ethan Rollins
Number 3 – Air – Gianna Reynolds
Number 4 – Fire – Angelena Campobasso
