13th Annual 24-Hour Video Race

13th Annual 24-Hour Video Race
Presented by the Video Association of Dallas
Saturday, May 10, 2014
Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station in Dallas

April 23, 2014 – Filmmakers: On your mark. Get set. GO for the 13th annual 24-Hour Video Race hosted by the Video Association of Dallas. The event will be held at the Angelika Film Center in Mockingbird Station (5321 E. Mockingbird Ln, Dallas) starting at 11:59 pm Friday, May 9 for registration and preparation. The actual race is the 24-hour span of Saturday, May 10.

Whether you’re average Jane or Joe who has always been interested in filmmaking or the professional videographer splashing in the industry, the 24-Hour Video Race welcomes all levels of filmmaking to participate.

Some sage advice from Luke DaMommio of Team Bonher, which has participated in the 24-Hour Video Race since 2010: "The main rule we have is no one talks until we get to the white board. And, of course, have fun, be serious and be with your friends because it's not always about winning."

Register early! The 2014 24-Hour Video Race will be limited to the first 100 teams. Teams will save $5 registering online. Online registration will be available until 5 pm Friday, May 9th. Registrations at the door will be available from 7 pm on Friday May 9 at the Angelika for an additional $5.

The teams are divided into five categories:

Pixelvision (K-12)
Futurevision (Current college and recent graduates)
Auteur (Professionals/Amateur teams of a single member)
Guerilla (Professional/Amateur teams of 3-5 members)
Hollywood (Professional/Amateur teams of 6 or more members)

There will be four critical elements to include in each short:

One theme
One prop
One location
One line of dialogue


This year, the Hollywood category will be spinning a wheel for an extra challenge of genre. Be at the Angelika at 11:30 pm, Friday, May 9, for the extra fun.


Participants works will be screened starting Tuesday, May 13 - 15th. Finalist will be screened Monday, May 19th at the Angelika Film Center, and winners announced Tuesday, May 20th. The winning team videos will be aired on KERA-TV Channel 13 program, “Frame of Mind,” the official 24-Hour website: and You+Meda Dallas site.

To be part of the screenings, team members should wear their race badges for admission, including teams who did not finish the race as well. Members of the general public are invited as well. Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under. The screening schedule will be announced Monday, May 12th.

Teams who do not complete the race at midnight will not be included in the judging.
