SHOOTOUT GALLERY - 2002

Home & Away’s Ben Steel accepted the celebrity challenge to make a short film for this year’s Newcastle Shootout (July 12 – 13), in which filmmakers have just 24 hours to produce a short film: only one take of each shot. Ben set an example to the entrants. The Silentest Film Ever Made took the honours.

The Shootout is a fun event that pushes filmmaking talent and efficiency to the limit. Entries must include a full effects track, dialog track, and music track written and mixed within the 24 hour time limit. We’re pleased to present The Making of Ben Steel’s Diagnosis Narcolepsy, as well as a clip from Shootout winner The Silentest Film Ever Made.
