You and your team have 24 hours to write, shoot, edit and post a 3-minute video... GO! Your team will compete for prizes against other SUNY Geneseo students in an attempt to incorporate three elements (from a list provided by the GIFF Overlords) into the most witty, interesting, and compelling video. This is a chance for students of all talents to flex their creative muscles and demonstrate a variety of skills, whether they be writers, actors, videographers, or editors. Rally the troops and get started!

Video submissions will be judged by a panel of five SUNY Geneseo Faculty and Staff. Each judge will use a subjective zero to five scale in each of the following categories:
- Impact: Did the judges laugh? Did they cry? Did it make them think?
- Cinematography: Was the the video visually compelling?
- Story: How well written, thought-out and portrayed is the story being told using the elements provided?
- Gestalt: How did the totality of the video strike the individual judge?
