2011 CC7D KICKOFF
Wednesday, July 6, 2011 – 6:30 PM
The Venue at House of Rock
511 Starr St.
It’s time to start filming and everyone’s invited. The entire city is invited and each year this event gets larger and larger. It’s a lot of fun for everyone, so come on out.
The CC7D Kickoff is the official start of the 7-Day Filming Period. A representative from each team, preferably the Team Leader, is required to attend. At this event, teams will register, pay their entry fee, turn in their signed Participant’s Agreement (coming soon) and receive this year’s essential elements (prop, character, line of dialogue and the secret element).
This is the last chance for those not on a team to find a team.
After all of ‘the business’ has concluded, the ‘starter pistol’ will fire which sets the official turn-in time for the CC7D Wrap Party on July 13–exactly 7 days later to the second.
Here is an example of how the Official Turn In Time is set:
The Kickoff Event starts at 6:30 PM. Once everyone is registered, questions are answered and the essential elements revealed, a to-be-determined CC7D steering committee member will use the clock on their networked cell phone to determine the exact time. For the purposes of this example let’s assume that time is 7:13 PM. The exact time (7:13 PM, in this example) will be announced loudly and clearly for all to hear and that will be the official turn-in time for the films one week later. Seven days later, that same networked cell phone will be used. When the clock on that cell phone turns to 7:13 PM, the turn-in is OVER. After that time, films will not be accepted.
What invariably happens is that someone will be late. They have fantastic excuses about why they were late. They, their parents (and sometimes their grandparents) will call us late into the night about how they had computer problems, were caught in a traffic jam on the way to the event, etc. Translation: LATE!
