Thread: Filmaka Fx Contest

    Default Filmaka Fx Contest

    Hi,
    Filmaka.com wants people to come up with the next "Southpark" type comedy and pitch it to them. You have to shoot a 3-minute film, but it doesn't have to be high-tech - they're looking for the idea. Then you write a page or two about what the whole series would be like. FX Network wants to pick up one of the submissions to make into a TV show
    for their fall season. Not a bad return for making a little video and writing 2 pages.

    From the competition submissions, ten semi-finalists will revise their shorts based on notes from FX and receive $1,000. Filmaka will begin accepting uploads for this competition on Monday, April21. The deadline for submitting your film and written brief is midnight on May 1, 2008. After the shorts are revised, one winner will be chosen to receive a budget of up to $40,000 to create a 15- to 20-minute presentation. For more details Log on to
    Filmaka
    Regards,
    John.

    Hmmm....

    Smells wrong to me. It appears you have to pay to enter and that should you 'win' anything you give away ALL ALL I say it again ALL the rights to your idea.

    This is not a real film competition.

    I think we've seen this 'competition' before. Believe we had a long debate about the merits of a 'paid for' competition with the OP (who apparently had no connection with the site).
