DALLAS, TX - They say Rome wasn't built in a day, but that doesn't mean you can't accomplish an awful lot in 24-hours.

Thursday night was the grand finale of the 24 Hour Video Race at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas.

Over 60 teams from all over DFW created five-minute films from scratch in just one day.

Yeah, that's a lot of work of anyone, and lots of the filmmakers, some of which are still in high school.

Fun was definitely the name of the game, but it wasn't just a free-for-all.  Each film had to include a place of worship, a sub sandwich, and a particular line of dialogue: "If all else fails, read the instructions."

The films were screened for a packed house on Thursday, and served as proof that sometimes great things are all in a day's work.
