Now happening every last Monday of the month, beginning July 25th
DOORS OPEN 6:30PM, MEET & GREET 6:30-7:30PM, EVENT 7:30PM
The Video Gong Show is an opportunity for local filmmakers to share their newest projects, found footage, home videos, or favorite YouTube clips to be judged and jeered by their peers (all in good fun). Clips that fail to wow and entertain the crowd risk being “gonged.” The piece that stands up to crowd scrutiny the longest will be crowned Gong Champion and win a prize!
For the audience, The Video Gong Show is a chance to be an outspoken critic. Spectators will be encouraged to boo, cheer, and act altogether inappropriate, serving as trusted advisors to the Gong Master, all the while stumbling through some of the newest and most absurd film & video content in Portland.
Arrive at 6:30PM to submit you videos. First come, first served. (7:00PM cut-off)
-Content: anything goes (no porn) the more ridiculous, revealing, and shameful the better
-Length: Clips should be no longer than 5 minutes (excerpts OK)
-Format: Vimeo or YouTube URL, DVD, Bluray, VHS, or a lap top with a VGA adapter. Please only bring what you want shown, as there will not be time to scan a disk/file for your clip.
-Please include the following info with your submission: Title, run time, producer & director (when possible), your name, e-mail and phone number
DISCLAIMER: SUBMITTING A VIDEO DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT IT WILL BE SCREENED DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO SCREEN AS MANY VIDEOS AS POSSIBLE.
