KDHX donates free National Film Challenge spot

Lights! Camera! Auction!

KDHX Community Media has got into the 2008 Experiential Auction action with a deluxe offering: You get a spot on the 2008 National Film Challenge!

That's an $110 value - and bidding on all experiences begins at $10!

The National Film Challenge is a timed filmmaking competition where filmmaking teams have just one weekend to make a short film. Only 300 teams from all over the world will be accepted - and one of those will come from Poetry Scores 2008 Experiential Auction.

The basic rules for the Challenge are simple. Win the bid, register your team and start lining up gear, cast and crew. At 7 p.m. sharp on Friday, Oct. 24, log into a secure website to get your genre and a character, prop and a line of dialogue that must appear in your film. Your team then has from Friday at 7 p.m. through midnight Monday, Oct. 27 to create a short film. All creativity must occur within the competition period: writing, rehearsing, shooting, editing, graphics, sound design, etc.

Bidding is open now and starts at $10. Check the Comments page on the auction's main post to see if anyone else has bid, then add your bid as a Comment - or email it to The highest advance bid will be the starting bid at the 2008 Experiential Auction 5-8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21 at Atomic Cowboy, 4140 Manchester Ave. The $10 admission is deducted from the price of your first winning bid.

Out of town filmmakers can email a proxy bid (as high as you are willing to go) and someone from Poetry Scores will bid on your behalf on Sunday.

It's a wrap.
