For Immediate Release

Urbana, Illinois, USA -- April 5, 2006

If you’ve ever dreamed of making a movie, now you have no excuse... AND you can help a worthy cause in the process!

The Champaign-Urbana 25by25by5 Short Film Contest to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society gives 25 teams of budding film-makers the opportunity to complete a 5-minute movie in 25 hours.

Up to 25 teams or individuals will each choose one 25-hour period beginning Wednesday, April 19, 2006 at 3:00 p.m. and ending at 10:00 p.m. Sunday, April 30, 2006.

In order to ensure the 25-hour time limit is observed, participants may not begin shooting their masterpieces until they have picked up project files. The files will include lists of items, 5 of which must appear in the finished product and one of which must appear within the first 25 seconds of the movie.

For more information and to sign up, contact LK Hansen at The registration fee is $25.

A gala screening event will be held on May 3, 2006 at the University YMCA’s Latzer Hall. Judges will choose winners in each of 4 categories, and the screening audience will vote for an Audience Choice best overall film. Prizes will be awarded to winners.

Screening admission is $5 in advance, $7 at the door (each team will receive one complementary screening pass). All proceeds from this contest will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

The mission of the LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. More information about the LLS and TNT -- and opportunities to donate -- can be found here.
