Playmakers’ Make-A-(movie) Mask Challenge: The Playmakers are offering a “Make-A-Mask Challenge” on their Facebook page as part of their current theme, “The Year of the Mask”. It encourages participants of all ages to keep making art and have some much needed fun. Essen- tially, participants will get clues to movies in which a featured character wears a specific mask. Once the correct movie is determined by the clue, the participant make the mask and post it's picture on facebook. All entries will be judged by Playmakers’ volunteers and the top twenty-one results will be posted there for everyone to repost in their own social media apps, as well as printed in the Grove Sun. “We’ve designed this as a challenge rather than a contest as we are reluctant to ask local businesses and organizations for prizes right now,” said Suzanne Boles of The Playmakers. “As Cedric the Entertainer said on a recent televised program of videos made by people around the world who are staying at home during the pandemic, we are seeing a “creative explosion” or a “quarantivity,” a word he created. These videos illustrate what some of us believe, that everyone has some kind of creativity if they just don’t let their imaginations lapse.” The Playmakers are giving adults, students of all ages, and family groups and friends a chance to reveal their creativity by making the movie character’s mask from materials you have at home or in your yard, especially recyclable materials. They don’t encourage participants to go spend money on purchasing supplies for the masks and starting with a purchased mask won’t be allowed.
Guidelines for participants in the Make-A-(movie) Mask Challenge Categories of movies in which at least one featured character wears a mask are: 1) movies prior to 1950, 2) movies produced between1950-1980 and, 3) those made after 1980. In some movies there may be more than one mask.
Time Table for Clues: One clue for one movie in each of these three categories will start being posted on Tuesday, May 26th and continue daily through Monday, June 1. That’s three clues per day for 7 days or 7 movies in each of the three categories.
Who May Participate—Categories: Family groups, friends, individual adults, and students, either individual or with a friend of same age: 8 yrs and under; 9-13 years of age, or 14-18 years old.
Deadline for Posting a Photo of your mask on FB- grove playmakers theatre: Sunday, June 7th after which judging will be held and the top 21 masks chosen.
Materials for Masks: No purchased masks may be used as a base for your mask. Please use materials and supplies that are available in your home or yard. Recyclable materials are encouraged, such as plastics of all types, magazines, cardboard, and papers and aluminum. This is your chance to use your imagination and be creative, even though you are replicating the mask worn in the movie.
Steps To Enter Determine the movie based on the clue; Send your guess of the movie described in the clue in a private message on the Facebook page. Please add your contact information: phone and email. We will let you know if you have identified the correct movie or not; If correct, make the mask following the guidelines and categories above. Post a photo of the mask with the name of the artist(s), the movie it is from, the character in the movie who wore it. You may post a video of the process of making the mask if it would be fun for viewers to see.
