YouTube seeks the world's best novice filmmakers

  • From RSS
Nate Weinstein,
Marketing Manager . Just watched the Panic Attack video.

Why do I like working in
the YouTube team so much ? One of the reasons is the opportunity to introduce talented people to a
huge audience. Today,
together with Ridley Scott, Scott Free London, the Venice Film Festival and Emirates , we are launching the Thy Movie international competition .
 The winner will receive a grant from YouTube for $ 500 thousand to create a
new film that the whole world will see. Watch the video with a brief description of the project: The

rules for participation are simple. Beginning February 2, send to the
contest website video stories with a duration of
less than 15 minutes. Anyone over 18
years old can take part . Any styles and genres are welcome. It's up to you to decide what it will be: a
short film, an animated or a documentary film, an episode of a web series, a
pilot series of a TV project, etc. Your video must have a plot, and it must
be created no earlier than January 1, 2010. The rules of the competition can be
found on the official channel of the project .

By June 2012, the Scott Free team will determine the
semi-finalists by selecting the 50 best videos from around the world. Next, the YouTube community
will openly vote on the top 10 entries. They will be shown on the Venetian
Film Festival in August 2012. The jury, led by Ridley Scott, will determine the
winner who will receive a grant of
500 thousand dollars and will work with Scott Free to create a
film that the whole world will see.
