The 4th Annual 24-Hour Video Goose Chase and Free-for-All

“I love this project. Democratic, Participatory, non-alienating and cheap!
Sounds like utopia.” Nato Thompson, MASS MoCA Assistant Curator

Williamstown, MA__ Images Cinema presents the 4th Annual 24-Hour Goosechase
and Free-For-All, which will kick off Saturday, May 6 at 11am. This free
event is an opportunity for video-makers of all levels of experience to
shoot, edit, and screen a video all within twenty-four hours. Everyone
interested in participating must attend the initial meeting on Saturday, May
6 at 11:00am at Images Cinema to receive the “secret clues” that must be
included in each video. Twenty-four hours later, Sunday, May 7, all
participants reconvene at Images with their completed videos of 5 minutes or
less. The public screening of all the videos will start at 12:00noon. Prizes
will be awarded based on a panel of judges and audience vote.

“The goose chase was awesome,” says Lisa Carton, “It was fun putting
together the short video, and being able to see it on the big screen was
really incredible! I was also really impressed and inspired by the quality
of some of the entries... altogether it was a very enjoyable experience.”
Lisa Carton and A. J. Rossi of Bennington, VT won the “Best Use of Object”
award in 2003.

Participants come from as far as Albany, NY, and as near as Williamstown and
North Adams, MA. Experience level and age were widely varied. Participants
included high school students, college students, working professionals, and
artists. Images Cinema is located at 50 Spring Street in Williamstown, MA.
