On Thursday, April 21, 30 teams assembled at The Grand Cinema to receive this year's 72-Hour Film Competition requirements - elements that need to be included in every film. In each submitted work, someone must say, "What are you going to do about it?"; somewhere, there must be an egg; and at least one scene must take place on a dock or pier.

Now in its seventh year, the 72-Hour Film Competition threw a curveball into the mix by requiring that one character must possess super powers, which will doubtlessly shape many of the films to be screened on Friday.

I contacted two battle-tested and ambitious 72-Hour veterans, Kris Crews and Rick Gratzer. Their styles couldn't be more dissimilar, with Gratzer frequently embracing silliness and Crews leaning in a more psychedelic direction. I wondered how they responded differently to the challenge of making a five-minute-or-less film in three days.
