Get funding to produce an original short, and win a chance to be mentored for a day by Forest Whitaker and Phillippe Caland from Junto Box on developing a script for a feature film.
Coke Zero is giving filmmakers an amazing opportunity to make their dream project possible.
To enter you need to submit a 60 – 90 second teaser of what your original short will be, based on the brief provided. Your film must be a story of romantic possibility based around the idea that some of the best action-creates-possibility moments happen at the weekend – particularly on a Saturday night, reflecting the unique energy that only Coke Zero gives.
• TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS:
A Video File must be submitted – the Video file (s) must be no more than the maximum duration stated in the Competition Brief (all copyrighted material will be removed).
The Video file size should be kept at or under 100 MB for quicker upload/encoding time (max file size is 300MB). Video Files must be provided in one of the following file formats: .MPG; .MOV; .AVI; .WMV; .MP4; .M4V
Finalists may be asked to provide the original audio and video files used during production of the entry for broadcast purposes. This may include uncompressed QuickTime files, final audio mix and/or separate audio tracks for dialogue, music, and effects. These items are not mandatory to become a Finalist
• ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS:
Submission must be primarily in English or subtitled.
You are over the age of 16 at the date of entry. (All Users of the age 16 to 18 must have permission of an adult who will receive any prizes or remuneration on their behalf);
Your teaser needs to make the viewer believe in your vision and want to see the finished film!
The shortlisted teasers will be promoted by Coke Zero on its Make it Possible Project website, and will be asking its community to get involved with helping to pick which filmmakers should go on to create the final short films. You’ll also need to activate your own social networks to help build buzz around your teaser.
At the beginning of October, three filmmakers will be given the great news as well as funding to produce the ten minute short! We’ll organize a professional workshop to help you out, too, and we will want you to document and share the full filmmaking process, so the community can see how you’re taking action to create your own possibility.
Then in 2013, the overall winner will be flown to Los Angeles to spend a day with Forest Whitaker and the Junto Box team and start to make possible your dreams of making your first feature film!
