Déjà View

Filmmaking Contest

Have you ever had that eerie feeling like you've been there or done that before?  Have you already experienced a present experience?

We call that Déjà View.  This experiment contest is simple:

We gave filmmaking teams the exact same script to shoot and edit.  What we hoped to get were completely different results.  And we weren't disappointed.

We wanted to see how different creative minds interpreted and produced the same idea.  But, there was a twist, each team got to choose how to end their story. 

We even upped the ante by offering $500 cash + $250 in gear rental equipment to the winning team.

So grab some popcorn and sit back, it's time to experience some Déjà View.

Congrats to the winning team of Déjà View 2022  - Team Resonance!

The Script...

The shooting script was called "The Gift" written by OSIF member Erin Hazlehurst.  It is attached here if anyone would like to read.


Each film is being watched and scored by a group of independent, industry professional judges.
The highest scoring film will win 1st prize - $500 cash, $250 in gear rental from video.equipment and a 1-year OSIF Membership.
The winner will be revealed on Monday, Feb 14th
