International Trout-Slap Film Festival

Each team must have no less than two members and no more than five members. The resulting film must be no longer than 10 minutes long. (We’re being Youtube friendly this year – so porn gets extra points)
All films must also be submitted with a 30 second trailer.
Use as much post production and special effects as you see fit so long as it’s all mainly your own work. (I don’t want to see shitty youtube videos)
All entries must be submitted in a digital format, none of this VHS or ‘here watch it off my camera’ crap
No male nudity unless a rubber duck is included in the shot, I will be flexible if it’s NEEDED. Just kidding.
Only restriction on the story is that it can’t be purely based off another team, like a ‘the making of Franks teams movie’ cause that lame face, and nobody gives a shit about Frank anyway. Since nobody did that last time, I expect you to show the same courtesy at the risk of being called a failboat. (For the uninitiated, that’s a boat made of fail.)

Things to include:
Each of these lists (locations, props and lines) have 5 items in them. At least 5 items from each list must be used in your film. (See what I did there?) More points for the more you include. Additionally, there is a list of 10 Potential Film Names. Your film MUST have one of these titles. Any number of teams can use the same title, but at your own risk. (If you simply Must have another title, I accept bribes in the form of food items.)

*Sad Puppets
*Here We Go
*The Truth?
*Play Paint
*The Stars
*Dr Horrible
*Oh So Casual
*So Did I!
*We Three

* A Food Place
* A Cardboard Box
* In car/other transport
* A Bedroom
* The Subconscious

With all these props, the bigger they are the more points they will earn. Also the more of a role they play the better points again. A small glimpse of something in the background is not worth much:
* A Spade
* At least one Golf Ball
* Gloves
* A Mask that covers at least half of the face
* Underpants on the outside

More points awarded for how naturally they flow. Just thrown in randomly will not be as good.
* We don’t make Bacon McFlurries.
* I enjoy clams. OR Your schnitzel is ready.
* The Spy is a double agent!
* What just happened?!

As an added bonus, if you cast me (Oliver/Umbrella Man) into a small role in your film you will get some more points. Just so I have something to do while everyone makes a film – you know, aside from fap and play video games.

As ANOTHER added bonus, if you include a reference to a previous video in your current video, you will gain points FOR GREAT JUSTICE!

All films and trailers must be ready to hand at 6pm on Monday night. Viewing will take place when all ya’ll lazy ass film makers get your projects in.
