Abstract: The blazar S5 0716+714 was the subject of an intensive 5 night multicolor observing campaign in March, 2003. Observations in the B and I filter were obtained with the 42″ Hall telescope at Lowell Observatory. Light curves in the B and I filters were obtained with a duration of 8-10 hours and sampling rates of approximately 8 minutes. Variations were observed with timescales ranging from days to < 1 hour and amplitudes ranging from 0.8 magnitudes to 0.03 magnitudes. No evidence for a lag between wavebands longer than the sampling rate was found. Evidence for color dependence was found in some, but not all of the observed variations.
