The event consists of a challenge wherein filmmakers from Springfield And The Ozarks (SATO) form teams to compete in creating a five-minute short film over the course of a single weekend – 48 hours.

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's up to each individual filmmaking team to interpret the criteria, produce their 5-minute film, deliver it within the 48-hour time limit, and compete for prizes, awards & recognition.

SATO48 is for:
– Anyone interested Film, Music, or Media Production
– Or anyone simply looking to network (In the world of media, it’s both
WHAT you know and WHO you know.)
