GENERAL MOTORS DRIVES YOUR STORIES

Post by energix79 » Sat Mar 01, 2008 12:01 pm

Filmaka has partnered with General Motors Corporation, the worlds largest automobile manufacturer, to run a new contest. Up to 7 finalists will receive $5000 each!

We want your pitches for shows that will feature some of GM's new vehicles. They are not looking for a traditional commercial, but instead for an engrossing story in which a GM vehicle plays a memorable part. Submit a detailed written synopsis of a film 3 – 5 minutes in length, with 4-5 more episode ideas intended to total around 30 minutes of original webisodic content that can live on its own and potentially be viewed as "pilot" material, as well as your creative extension and distribution recommendations.

From these finalists GM can choose pilots to put into production and provide the appropriate vehicles for the shoot. A complete list of the vehicles GM wants to feature, and more info on the contest can be Found Here on our site. (http://www.filmaka.com/gm/)

We will start accepting submissions (in pdf format) in the middle of next week. Submissions must be in by MARCH 11th – so get cracking.

Ok, should I be scared that I wrote up just such a short script last week just because, or happy?
