Do you have what it takes to create an award-winning short film? Then enter the SATO 48 film competition.

SATO 48, is now in its 9th year where filmmakers from Springfield And The Ozarks (SATO) form teams to compete in creating a five-minute short film with only 48 hours to spare.

None of the teams know what their film must be about until they all open, simultaneously, a secret envelope (the "Inspiration Package"), which describes the criteria of the short film.

Once the filmmakers have received their "Inspiration Package," it is then up to each of the individual filmmaking teams to interpret the criteria, produce their 5-minute film, and deliver it within the 48-hour time limit.

SATO48 is for:

- Anyone who has ever been involved in SATO48

- Anyone interested in SATO48

- Anyone interested Film, Music, or Media Production

- Or anyone simply looking to network (In the world of media, it's not always about WHAT you know but WHO you know.)

Kickoff is April 11, 2014
