Once logged in teams will click a clearly labeled "START" Button on the website. Clicking this button will officially begin each team's "48 Hour Period".
Teams may click the button anytime between AUGUST 9th & AUGUST 25TH after the official opening time. To account for time zone difference, each team's 48 hour period is unique to them.
Teams will receive a Random Line of Dialogue, Random Genre, and possible other required elements as soon as they click the button.
The participating team/group must complete its film/video work in time to upload it through the 48GFC.com website before their 48 Hr. Period has expired.
