Join us for an exciting 24 hour session of creative jamming with film and technology!
You can make anything you can imagine: a VR movie, an AR utility, a Livestream extension, a linear storybook animated comicbook app, a print and play tabletop game, or whatever else! Ideally it can be uploaded and shared with the community, but if nothing else, you could record people playing it and upload that here.
Sponsored by Access Salt Lake and Utah Geek Events and WildWorks, and organized by UDEN and IGDA SLC.

In addition, on Saturday Salt Lake City is hosting a Free street festival event in front of Access Salt Lake and several other areas in the downtown area on Saturday, May 5th between the hours of 10am-4pm. 200 West and the eastbound lanes of 200 South will be closed from 6am-5pm. This means attendees and visitors that need to leave during that time have to ask to get escorted out and back in, or park somewhere further away and walk in.
This event will be in the entire east bound lanes between 200 West and West Temple as well as the entire lane of 200 West, which impacts street parking and accessing the parking garage near the Jam. The street festival takes place from 10am-4pm, but the road will be closed beginning at 6am and reopen by 4:45-5pm. You won't be able to park on the street there, and if you park in the parking garage behind Access Salt Lake, you can still get access with police escort during the hours of the event.

There will be prizes for the best interactive experiences.
You can join a team on the day or come along with your own.
You will need to be available to work with your team Friday and Saturday!
You will need to sign a waiver- this is just a volunteer-run fun networking event.
There is minimal security so plan to watch out for your stuff or leave it with a volunteer.
Plan to get the organizer's number if you leave at night in case you accidentally get locked out.
You can make anything, but keep it family friendly and aim to have the presentation be about 5-10 minutes long.
You will need to bring your own equipment, food, and sleeping bag (if stopping over).
Please respect the facilities and be prepared to take out your own trash.
The elevators shut down at 7:00pm each evening, and do not run on the weekend unless you are a tenant with a card. If there is anyone who will not be able to use the stairs, let me know at vazor222 at gmail and I can try to make arrangements.
Thank you to the judges:
