Join us for a summer collaborative film project! Sign up to produce a scene from a famous film. Take creative license with casting and film techniques, and make the scene your own. The scenes will be assembled into a complete film that is uniquely Vermont-made. 

This summer, we will recreate “Cast Away” – a great film to showcase the lakes and rivers of Vermont, and a film that has many scenes that will work well on a socially-distanced film set. Sign up for free, and connect with your local community media center to get tech support and more. 

How It Works
Each team is assigned a scene from the film to interpret creatively – it could be filmed with live action, animation, remix, puppetry, and other visual styles. Scenes should contain similar dialog, action, be close to the original runtime – remember each scene is part of a bigger project. We encourage teams to look at the film with new eyes, which may mean adapting language, challenging cultural norms, and updating cultural references. Scenes cannot contain any copyrighted images or audio.
