will the films be judged?
A: On overall quality. Writing, acting, plot, etc. by non-partial
professional movie makers
don’t have a nice camera. And all I’ve got is Windows Movie
Maker/iMovie. Can I still compete?
A: Absolutely! If you have a good script, we don’t care how poor
the video quality is. Just do the best with what you have- we want
EVERYONE to compete!
Q: Does my
film have to be ABOUT the phrase and object I choose?
A: Not at all. As long as the phrase is spoken at some point in
the film, and the object is in the camera’s view at some point
in the film, you are good!
Q: What kind
of music is permissible for inclusion in my film?
A: Either music you created, own the rights to, or public domain,
royalty-free music. There are a ton of websites that offer this
kind of music for download, completely free. Just because you
own a band’s CD does not give you the “rights” to use it in
your own production.
