DOGMA18

How does a filmmaker practice their craft with limited resources?

Dogma18 was created to provide filmmakers a way to practice their craft in an efficient, cheap and educational way.

Unlike other creative disciplines that require few resource and people, practicing true filmmaking is complex. A filmmaker needs a script, a treatment, storyboards, casting, rehearsals, gear, crew, locations and lots of favors from friends and family. The result? Time, energy, money, relationships, and other resources are exhausted.

Dogma18 aims to give experienced filmmakers an opportunity to showcase and sharpen their craft, as well as, provide aspiring filmmakers the chance to go through the full process of production.

We accomplish this through a set of clear guidelines that ensure a quick turn around of high-quality work.

 

THE GUIDELINES

  1. 10-Second Short Film

  2. 1-2 Actors

  3. 1 Camera

  4. 1 Location

  5. 3 Hour Production (set-up, shoot, breakdown)

  6. All participants must get PAID!

WHY "THE GUIDELINES"

The Mission of Dogma18 is to provide aspiring and experienced filmmakers with the opportunity to practice their craft and showcase their work - while working within a budget

Our Purpose is to allow room for filmmakers to make mistakes that are healthy and progressive. This enables filmmakers to refine their skills and build the "muscle memory" of filmmaking. By quickly pushing through the challenges and unpredictable hurdles of making a very short film, filmmakers will take on more significant projects with confidence, ease, and experience.

Our Vision is to educate filmmakers on the business side of creativity and to help launch original content birthed right here in El Paso, Texas.
