Bradric Productions and The McCarty Metro, are pleased to announce the fifth McCarty Metro Film Project. The event will take place from June 27 - July 3, 2016. The event is open to all. We are looking for people get an idea of a film in accordance with the rules posted on this website on June 27, then over the next 7 days, write, act, direct and produce a short 4 minute or less movie and submit it to the McCarty Metro by 11:59 pm Sunday July 3. 

Starting Monday, June 27 at 12:01 AM Eastern Time, you will have 7 days to write, shoot, and edit a short film that meets the set guidelines laid out in “Details” below. The winner or winners will be determined by a judge or judges deemed appropriate by the McCarty Metro staff. All judges decisions are final.

The winners will be prominently featured on McCarty Metro, and Bradric Productions website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter sites, as well as being featured on an upcoming episode of Rick's Martini Bar.


On Sunday June 27th at 12:01AM Eastern Time, we will have a link at the top of this page  with the 4 specific details that MUST be part of your video. Be sure to check back on or after June 27 for the specifics.  Included in that link will be the following...





ED NOTE: Your film submission must abide by the 4 required details listed above. (Your film must fit our overall concept, and must include our posted phrase, and must include our posted object, and must meet the 4th requirement. We do this to ensure that no films are written, shot, or edited before the beginning of our contest. Example: A “comedy” film that includes the phrase “I have a bad feeling about this” in the dialogue and includes a telephone. (NOTE: This is just an example! We will post the official list of acceptable concepts, phrases, and objects at the time listed above.)

When finished, you need to save your video on your computer.
Go to http://www.youtube.com and create a YouTube account (If you don't have one already). 
Click the Upload button to upload your video. While uploading, you can provide more information. In the description of the video, please provide the names of everyone involved in your production, the production team name if you have one (ours is Bradric Productions). Title and artist for any music you use.
Once the upload is complete, YouTube will provide you with the web address that your video can be viewed from by us and others. Send that url to the McCarty Metro at mccartymetro@gmail.com. Besides the link, provide us the name of the video, info of your staff, actors, etc., and production team name.
Your finished film must be uploaded before Sunday, July 3rd at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

Videos can be no longer than 4 minutes in length.
Videos cannot include any explicit content (Obscene language, nudity, sexual situations, etc.)
Videos must portray our posted concept, use one of our posted phrases, one of our posted objects, and must meet a specific 4th requirement
Videos must be uploaded by Sunday, July 3rd at 11:59PM Eastern Time.
Videos cannot contain copyrighted music. Only music you create, own the rights to, or that is public domain and royalty free is permissible.

Q: How will the films be judged?
A: On overall quality. Writing, acting, plot, etc.

Q: I don’t have a nice camera. And all I’ve got is Windows Movie Maker/iMovie. Can I still compete?
A: Absolutely! If you have a good script, we don’t care how poor the video quality is. Just do the best with what you have- we want EVERYONE to compete!

Q: Does my film have to be ABOUT the phrase and object I choose?
A: Not at all. As long as the phrase is spoken at some point in the film, and the object is in the camera’s view at some point in the film, you are good!

Q: What kind of music is permissible for inclusion in my film?
A: Either music you created, own the rights to, or public domain, royalty-free music. There are a ton of websites that offer this kind of music for download, completely free. Just because you own a band’s CD does not give you the “rights” to use it in your own production.

(Come back to this page often- it’ll be updated with more FAQs regularly leading up to the event!)

Those are all of the official rules! If you have any further questions, send an email to mccartymetro@gmail.com, and I will reply to you or post it here.
