If Mobile Motion Picture making is right up your alley, Nokia has something you would be very interested in, the Nokia Shorts Competition. A grand prize of $10,000 and an all expenses trip to the London Film Museum is on the line along with a chance to be one of the 8 entries that will be selected to receive $5,000 to produce the full version on two, Nokia N8’s.
In order to take part, all you need to do is create a video pitch of an idea for a short film or video, in no longer than two minutes. Add a 100 word description to it and submit it to Nokia’s Vimeo channel. If you are one of the 8 lucky people picked by the jury, the $5,000 production budget and two Nokia N8’s could be winging their way to you. What’s more, a premiere screening at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2011 awaits all shortlisted filmmaker’s finished films.
The jury will be looking for originality, so to shortlist, pitch an innovative idea, a unique approach, or unusual angle: in short, something new. Nokia will announce the shortlisted filmmakers by 24.04.2011 and cash and cameras will be shipped out in good time for shooting to start on 02.05.2011 and wrap on 12.06.2011. You have time until April 17th 2011 to submit your pitch.
You can find all the details on Nokia’s Vimeo page.
