It’s a bit short notice but better late than never right?
YouTube recently launched Project Direct, a short film competition that challenges filmmakers to direct an original short incorporating three specific elements defined by Jason Reitman, the award-winning director of Thank You For Smoking and the upcoming film, Juno.
Reitman and a panel of industry experts will choose the top 20 films and the YouTube community will vote for a final winner.
If you win, you’ll be sent to a major international film festival where you’ll attend surprise industry events, meet with executives from Fox Searchlight Pictures, and show your film at a private event. You’ll also see your winning short broadcast on the home page of YouTube in countries all over the world, and you’ll win $5000.
Submission deadline is November 9th! Check out [url:e09d7]http://www.youtube.com/projectdirect[/url:e09d7] to learn more about the specific challenge.
