Guidelines for creating your own Minute Movie.

Every month we're going to each make a minute movie on a theme. This month it's FINISH. Your interpretation can be as literal or as figurative as you want. Let your imagination take over!

All minute movies will be screened the third Sunday of the month. So come see your movie on the big screen, talk about it, get feedback from your peers, learn new techniques and meet awesome people! Currently our only screenings are in Seattle, if you're in Seattle come join us!! 6:30 at Seattle Film Institute! If you're not in Seattle, send me an email and let me know where you want us to come to next :)

The movies will be available on the facebook page, twitter and on the blog so be sure to like and follow:

If you want to connect with other filmmakers to make a minute movie, head over to the Facebook group:

Some quick guidelines:

-All movies should be roughly one minute long, no more than two minutes (plus 15 seconds of credits)

-Somewhere in the credits include the theme and the phrase "Made for Seattle Minute Movies"

-No copyrighted material (including music*)

-Keep everything respectful and try not to go above an R rating. This is a family friendly group!

-Upload your video on YouTube, send me an email at with the link and I'll post a list of all the videos after they've been screened.

-Deadline is the Saturday before the screening

-Movies will be screened on a first-come, first-serve basis. So send me the link as soon as you're done!

-Priority will be given to those who are present at the meeting, but if you finish a movie and can't make it, send me the link and I'll still screen it!
