We can't imagine making a movie in 72 days, much less 72 hours - but that's exactly the directive laid out by Missoula Community Access Television in Do It in 72, 2016. How does it work? You get an action, a prop and a line of dialogue - then you get 72 hours to write, shoot, edit and score a short film, with cash prizes for the best entries! The clock starts tomorrow ...
September 30, 2016, 5:00pm - October 3, 2016, 6:00pm
The Do It In 72! Film Contest is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and your team have a blast making a movie with a given action, prop and a line of dialogue that we give you at the start of the weekend to implement into your movie. All writing, shooting, editing and scoring must be completed in just 72 hours, where afterwords it will be turned into MCAT for judging.
There will be an awards presentation at the historic Roxy Theatre 718 S Higgins Ave on Saturday October 9 at 5pm. The first prize gets $500, second prize $300 and honorable mention $100.

Happy Thursday, Trailheads! Coming up in a few, Craig welcomes trombonist, composer and Seattle transplant Naomi Moon Siegel into the studio to chat about her new album and her Missoula performance debut at the The Roxy Theater on Saturday.
Naomi Moon Siegel's Vinyl Release Tour - Live at The Roxy
October 2, 2016, 7:00pm - October 2, 2016, 10:00pm
The Roxy Theater
Here's the thing-- As a community, we are very rich when it comes to creative, heart-centered, talented people. This summer, with the relocation of trombone player and composer Naomi Moon Siegel from Seattle to Missoula, this pool of richness flows ever wider and ever deeper.
This Spring I had the great honor of creating a music video for Naomi's track "Electric Flower" featuring Lee and Frances Rizzo and the stunning cinematography of Sarah Meismer.
October 2nd at 7pm will be a true delight of live music and the premiere of Electric Flower the music video. Please give a very warm welcome to Naomi as she meets her Missoula audience. The show will open with music from beloved local musicians Caroline Keys and Jeff Turman. Get your tickets while they last!
"With haunting trombone folk melodies, fantastical soundscapes and tight grooves, Naomi performs the music from her 2016 release Shoebox View. Featuring Sean Woolstenhulme on guitar, her music creates cinematic space that is introspective and celebratory. Naomi and Sean began playing as a duo in 2014 after performing in Wayne Horvitz's Electric Circus in Seattle. As a trombone and guitar duo, they perform their own brand of indie folk jazz infused with intimate synergy.
Caroline Keys and Jeff Turman each traded in a south-of-the-Mason-Dixon-Line groove for Montana, where they often find themselves performing off-grid. Keys and Turman play in several configurations, including Stellarondo, who are involved in a collaboration wherein they "score" short fiction by writer Rick Bass as if it were film and CK+The LaneSplitters, who will release an album of Keys' songs in early 2017. As a duo, they deliver original songs, instrumentals, trade off upright bass, guitar, and banjo duties, and croon country duets.
Today's SONG OF THE DAY is "Respect" by Aretha Franklin! When you hear it, be among the first five to call 543-4103 and you'll qualify for an entire year's worth of concerts for free! Contest details and calendar here: trail1033.com/the-golden-ticket-contest-is-here/
