About the Challenge

WINTER FILM AWARDS challenges the local NYC community to create a 4-7 minute short film in a specified genre, tagline and prop in just a single gonzo weekend! Thirty teams of the most creative people in the tri-state area have just 48 sleepless hours to decide what they are going to do, write a screenplay, assemble props, costumes and actors, rehearse, shoot, score and edit their film. Students, amateurs, and seasoned industry veterans alike learn the importance of caffeine, team work and time management in successful filmmaking.

About Jungle Software

The team at Jungle Software were once a bunch of guerrillas, guerrilla filmmakers that is. Much like all filmmakers, they struggled with all the little details that you need to keep track of when producing a film. They had to do it all, and they needed software that could help manage it all. But, alas, there was nothing out there that fit. The ones that came close either didn’t integrate with one another, were klunky, buggy, or hard to use, and most were way beyond their budget. So, they built their own product, and today, Gorilla is a full-suite of invaluable tools for producing films and videos.

Jungle Software provides filmmakers and storytellers of all levels and genres with a full range of software solutions, including Gorilla Pro film production software, the Gorilla Ratebook labor union rate guide and StoryO story organization software.

Jungle’s Gorilla 6 is the most comprehensive film and video production tool on the market today.  Gorilla 6 gives you the ability to manage your entire production in one tightly integrated piece of software.  Full-featured production scheduling including breakdown sheets, cast and crew management, locations, storyboards and shot lists.

Chimpanzee is Gorilla’s little cousin, designed for low budget projects, web content providers and student or beginner filmmakers.  Chimpanzee offers traditional film scheduling & budgeting features at an affordable price.
