These instructions apply only to films that are selected to screen in the 2024 Producers’ Show.

Deadline for films selected for the 2024 Producers’ Show

All revised Producers’ Show Films are due at 12:00 Noon (Pacific Time), Friday, April 26, 2024.

Sound Mixes

All films that are accepted into the Producers’ Show are required to have a sound mix. Sound mixes will be scheduled by Daniel Eaton ( after the film list has been posted. He will contact Producers’ Show participants with specific mix times. Mixes are currently expected to take place starting Monday, April 22, and concluding Thursday, April 25, 2024.


If you want to make any revisions to your film for the Producers’ Show:

  • It’s ok to finish coloring animation, fix any compositing problems, and make improvements to your soundtrack (including music).
  • If you need to tighten the editing a little bit, that’s ok – but not if it alters the structure or story of your film.
  • Credits can be extended to be more reasonable in length (e.g. by an additional 3-5 seconds).
  • Any changes made to your film must be completed prior to your sound mix with Daniel Eaton (
  • Check spelling, punctuation and capitalization of names and titles.
  • Email Maija Burnett ( and Nathan Strum ( with submission and film questions, or Submit a 2 Pop Ticket with any technical questions.

You are not allowed to:

  • Make significant editorial, story, timing or content changes.
  • Increase the length of your film (except as noted above for credits).

Submission Instructions

On Tuesday, April 23rd we will create a dedicated submission folder for your film on FVCentral and will email you when it is ready. This folder is different from the one you submitted your Open Show film to. Your film must be submitted to the folder that we specify in the email. Even if you have made no revisions to your film since the Open Show, please upload your final video file here so we’re certain we have the right version of it.

Daniel Eaton will be providing the final sound files to us directly. We will layback the final mixes onto all films. Please do not remove the audio from your film. We use it as reference for the layback.

Films may be submitted as soon as the FVCentral links are received, but only submit your film when you have finished revising it. We will not accept resubmissions, unless we specifically request them.

If any revised films miss the Producers’ Show deadline, we will use the Open Show versions of the films instead.

Technical Requirements

These are the same as for the Open Show.
