Think you can create a 4 minute film using 3 mystery elements in just 72 hours for a chance to win $500? The options for ideas are endless, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

MCAT, Missoula Community Access Television, invites you to participate in their "Do It In 72" contest. The contest starts on September 30th at 5 p.m. and ends on October 3rd at 5 p.m.

That gives you 72 hours to create your 4-minute film. Your video must be 4 minutes or less, including credits, and must include the 3 elements that MCAT will reveal on Friday, September 30th at 5 p.m. at 500 North Higgins, Suite 105. The 3 elements will also be revealed online the same day at 6 p.m.

You may work on the script, locations and actors prior to September 30th, however you cannot shoot anything before learning about the mystery elements. Your film can be about anything! Romance, murder mystery, documentary, action flick, but must include the 3 elements.

IMPORTANT: avoid using copyrighted 'anything', especially music!

Upload or send a link to your completed movie to the MCAT website, or hand deliver a digital copy to MCAT at 500 North Higgins, Suite 105 by 5 p.m. on October 3rd to be eligible.

The award screening will be held on Sunday, October 9th at 5 p.m. at The Roxy. You or a production team member must be present to win. The grand prize is $500, second place is $300 and Honorable Mention is $100.

Get creative and good luck!
