If you're like me you spend a lot of time on Youtube. You also like cameras. A lot. Youtube thinks that kind of person is pretty neat and they'd like to hand over $500,000 to one such guy or gal. The catch? You have to make one hell of a film. It's called YOUR FILM FESTIVAL and it's pretty straightforward; make a compelling, story-driven video and enter it by March 31st. There's no entry fee and it can be any format you please; webisode, TV pilot, short film - your call. Once all the entries are in, Youtubers from around the globe will vote to select ten lucky winners to move on to the 2012 Venice Film Festival where the Grand Prize Winner will collect a $500,000 grant to create an original film produced by filmmaking legend, Ridley Scott. In other words, this competition can make your career.
Sounds pretty badass. I hope all the 48 Hour Guerrilla Film Competition alumni bring their A-game. I expect nothing less than excellence.
