Cool: Apple is sponsoring a movie contest for students with the amusing subhead, "Write, cast, shoot, edit, score, sleep. In that order."
On Friday, November 10 at 5 p.m. Eastern (2 p.m. Pacific), we will post a list of three elements that you will need to incorporate into your story. From that time, you will have 24 hours to finish and submit your completed short film.
After the entries are posted to our web gallery, we will make them available for the public to view and rate. The top 25 highest rated films through December 3 will then be judged by our panel of experts.
We will designate winners in two categories: the audience choice and the judges’ choice. Winning team members will each receive a copy of Final Cut Studio, a copy of Shake, and an 80GB video iPod for their portable portfolio.*
The panel of judges is impressive, and who wouldn't want the prizes? (Hat tip to Mike.)
